Negro Migration into Rural Southwestern Michigan.
Wheeler, James O.; Brunn, Stanley D.
The Geographical Review, v58 n2 p214-30 1968
Conditions and characteristics underlying the spatial distribution of Negroes in rural Southwestern Michigan are studied in this document. The migration of Negroes is traced into the area, the demographic composition is analyzed, and social and economic ties are compared with those of the white population. Census data and household interviews in 4 communities are utilized. Maps and pictures are used for illustrative purposes. It is indicated that Negro migration into Southwestern Michigan may be an indicator of a future trend associated with metropolitan environments. As the population of central cities becomes increasingly Negro, and the suburbs remain predominantly white, Negroes may move from the ghettos directly into rural areas. (SW)
