SHSU Professor Bernadette Pruitt to Read Excerpts of Her New Book Today at Austin Hall

Published on February 21, 2014 by Larry Crippen

The “Great Migration” is a term used to describe the movement of millions of African Americans from the south to northern industrial cities in search of a better life.

But associate professor of history Bernadette Pruitt points out that African Americans didn’t just migrate north.

Her first book details the “Other Great Migration,” in which, during the same time period,1900 to 1941, African Americans also moved to Houston.

The SHSU History Department will celebrate Pruitt’s research and her first book, “The Other Great Migration: The Movement of Rural African Americans to Houston, 1900-1941,” today during a book signing beginning at 3 p.m. in Austin Hall.
