The Encyclopedia of the Great Black Migration of the Twentieth Century
(forthcoming from Greenwood Press), seeks qualified scholars to contribute
to this collaborative, scholarly endeavor.

The encyclopedia seeks to situate the movement of southern African Americans
to the urban North and Far West over the course of the twentieth century in
its broadest social, economic, cultural, and political context. Entries will
provide students and researchers with information about the key people,
places, organizations, and events that defined the era of the migration
(1900-1970). The encyclopedia draws upon the expertise of leading scholars
in history, economics, demography, sociology, anthropology, journalism,
geography, literature, art history, and musicology to craft entries that
incorporate the interpretations and insights of recent scholarship.

About 75 of the 450 entries remain to be assigned. Entries vary in length
from 500 to 2000 words and relate to a variety of topics. If you are
interested in contributing, please contact Dr. Steven A. Reich
reichsa at jmu.edu for full details of the project and a complete list of the
available entries.
