The Great Migration and Changes in the Northern Black Family, 1940 to 1990.
Tolnay, Stewart E.
Social Forces, v75 n4 p1213-38 Jun 1997
The longstanding assumption that migration of southern blacks to northern cities negatively affected black family structure in the North was examined by comparing the living arrangements of women and children for migrants and nonmigrants in northern cities, 1940-90. Results show that northern urbanites with "southern origins" actually exhibited more traditional family patterns. Contains 63 references. (Author/SV)
