DuBois s article, ​T M a N ​ (June 1917) from ​C Ma a both. ​ ​(NAACP publication) As to the reasons of the migration, undoubtedl , the first & immediate cause as economic, the mo ement began because of floods in middle Alabama and Mississippi and because the latest de astation of the boll ee il [beetle that feeds on cotton plants - ruins cotton har est] came in these same districts. A second economic cause as the cutting off of immigration from Europe to the North and the consequentl idespread demand for common labor. The U.S. Department of Labor rites: ...that most of the help imported from the South has been emplo ed b railroad companies, packing houses, foundries, factories, automobile plants, in the northern States as far est as Nebraska. The third reason has been outbreaks of mob iolence in northern and south estern Georgia and in estern South Carolina... These ha e been the three immediate causes, but back of them is, undoubtedl , the general dissatisfaction South. Indi iduals ha e gi en us the follo ing reasons for migration from certain points: ● Birmingham, Ala., right to ote, discontent, bad treatment, lo ages, l nching ● Montgomer , Ala., lo ages, lack of emplo ment, bad treatment, oppression ● South Atlanta, Ga., schools, freedom, ci il rights, lo ages, l nching ● Co ington, Ga., lo ages, l nching ● Augusta, Ga., lo ages, bad treatment ● Nash ille, Tenn., lo ages, iolence and l nching ● Jackson, Miss., lo ages, discrimination ith the conditions in the ...The character of the people ho are going aries, of course, but as the Birmingham, Ala., ​A -H a r​ emarks: "It is not the riff-raff of the race, the orthless Negroes, ho are lea ing in such large numbers. There are, to be sure, man poor Negroes among them ho ha e little more than the clothes on their backs, but others ha e propert and good positions hich the are sacrificing in order to get a a at the first opportunit because of iolence and bad treatment. ...Ho great this migration ill e entuall pro e depends upon a number of things. The entrance of the United States into the ar ill undoubtedl ha e some effect. Immediatel , as the ar demands more industrial goods, and as man able bodied men signing up for the ar & joining the arm , there is a shortage of industrial orkers. When the ar ends it is doubtful if the labor shortage in Europe ill allo a er large migration to the United States for a generation or more. This ill mean increased demand for colored laborers in the North. At an rate, interest. e face here a social change among American Negroes of great moment, and one hich needs to be atched ith intelligent D c e 1A a i Q e i 1) C R a : ​What Great Migration? : ere the three reasons W.E.B DuBois suggests that moti ated African Americans to lea e the south during the plants ruinedcropsand decreasedeconomy widespread demand forlaborin thenorthernfactories racistoutbreaksinSouth lynching oboilweevil on cotton 2) C R a : ​From the list pro ided in the source, hat seems to be the number one reason African Americans arious cities of the south?
