For Black History Month: The Economics of the Great Migration [feedly]

For Black History Month: The Economics of the Great Migration

Ellora Derenencourt, assistant professor in the Department of Economics and the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley.

At the tail end of Black History Month, we have posted to the Dollars & Sense website Rolling Up the Welcome Mat at the Door to the Promised Land: The Economic History of the Great Migration and Its Aftermath, an interview with Ellora Derenoncourt, assistant professor of economics at UC Berkeley.  (Make sure to check out the gorgeous photos accompanying the written version of the interview, also in the print edition, from the Charles "Teenie" Harris Archives at Pittsburgh's Carnegie Museum of Art. Harris was a staff photographer for the Pittsburgh Courier, an African-American weekly newspaper whose publication years, 1910 to 1966, coincided almost exactly with the years of the Great Migration.)

The interview was conducted by Zoe Sherman, associate professor of economics at Merrimack College and a member of the Dollars & Sense editorial collective.  You can listen to the interview here:
