The Great Migration was the movement of 1.4 million imigrants out of the Southern United States to the North,
Midwest and West from 1910 to 1930.
Precise estimates of the number of migrants depend on the time frame.
People migrated to escape racism and seek employment opportunities in industrial cities. Some historians differentiate between the First Great Migration (1910–40), numbering about 1.6 million migrants, and the Second Great Migration, from 1940–70.
In the Second Migration, 5 million or more people relocated, with the migrants moving to more new destinations. Many moved from Texas and Louisiana to California where there were jobs in the defense industry.
The new generation were raised and schooled in South Central Los Angeles
where many creative and talented artists live.
This program's mission is to expose worldwide the talent in this community and
not everything from
South Central is BAD.
