To Go or Not to Go: Proponents and Opponents Toward the Exodusters of 1879-1880

Abstract:

After the end of Reconstruction, some blacks were disillusioned with race relations in North Carolina. With the enactment of the Homestead Act, western migration was encouraged. Dissatisfied with economic and political restrictions, African Americans were ready to migrate from the South and head westward. Leading black men such as Frederick Douglass and Charles N. Hunter, a black educator, perpetuated the myth of North Carolina being a “progressive” state. Proponents of the migration included Bishop Henry M. Turner and Samuel Perry, black migration leader, who believed blacks would have better economic and political success in Indiana or Kansas. By leaving North Carolina, many African Americans showed that they rejected the myth of good race relations in the state.

My primary research will largely come from the Manuscript collection of Charles N. Hunter, housed at Duke University. I also will be using the Report and Testimony of the Select Committee of the United States Senate to Investigate the Causes of the Removal of the Negroes from the Southern States to the Northern States. One of my secondary sources is A Nation Under Our Feet: Black Political Struggles in the Rural South from Slavery to the Great Migration by Steven Hahn.
