African Americans migrated from southern regions of the United States, the Caribbean, and Africa during the early 20th century, settling in urban communities in the Midwest, North, and Western U.S. The transition continued in the 21st century, from their initial urban locations to suburban and exurban locations, with class, income, and education as predominant factors. However, this gave rise to an increased sense of isolation, loss of identify, and the gradual erosion of political power unique to urban communities in the late 20th century. This scholarly resource examines the experiences of African Americans and the development of their identities and offers the opportunity to examine the implications of the exodus, giving voice to all aspects of African American-lived experiences in suburban communities. Covers higher education, criminal justice, and social media. For professionals, educators, social scientists, political leaders, law enforcement, students, and researchers.
