Black Americans: A Chartbook.
Small, Sylvia S.
This book is a compilation of data on black Americans. The record of the past two decades shows that blacks have been migrating out of the rural South into the cities of the North and West. There, with greater choices, many have been progressing economically from unskilled low-paid jobs into white-collar and skilled occupations. In search of better housing and jobs, many have been moving out from their first place of urban settlement in city core centers into the surrounding suburban rings. Over a period of time, a migrant population has been giving way to a settled, urban, second generation, as increasing numbers are moving economically and socially from extreme poverty into middle-class status. Others are left behind, both in the rural back waters of the South and in the urban centers. The charts and tables in this book attempt to present visually some of the information about blacks in recent years. Data from the 1970 census are included. (Authors/JA)
