The Great Migration was the movement of approximately seven million African Americans out of the Southern United States to the North, Midwest and West from 1916 to 1930.

When the African Americans were freed from slavery they found life in the southern states of America hell. Certain laws had come into place and people like the KKK wre around. So the great my greation was the many African Americans moving form the souther states to the northern states of America to what they believed was to be a better life.

This is wrong.
