The Black Urban Population of the Pre-civil War South
Wilkie, Jane Riblett
Phylon, 37, 3, 250-262, Sep 76
Examines the urbanization of blacks in the slave states from 1790 to 1860. Changes in the geographic distribution and demographic structure of the black urban population provide new evidence to evaluate the causes of the decline of urban blacks and reveal the likelihood of a disproportionate incidence of incomplete families for both slave and free black urban dwellers.
