Title: Lessons from a Century of Black Migration
Abstract: Although most immigrants residing in New York City during the early twentieth century hailed from Europe, the city was also home to many black migrants born in either the U.S. south or the Caribbean. Using complete count and linked U.S. census data from 1910 to 1940, I document how patterns of social and economic incorporation among black migrants, both U.S.- and foreign-born, differed from those of early twentieth-century European immigrants. The project. also highlights the role of discrimination in shaping social outcomes for black people in New York City during the early twentieth century.
