The Great Migration (1910-1930) is a period in American history when Southern African Americans had no choice but to walk north to get jobs.  There was a population increase of almost 40% in the big cities like Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland, Baltimore and New York.  Most were recruited for hard labor industrial jobs.
