[nice tight clean copy, appears unread; jacket just a bit scuffed/rubbed, nothing serious]. The author "tells the story of a little-known yet compelling reverse exodus -- of half a million black Americans in the cities of the North, many of whom heard a call to return home to the hardscrabble life of the rural South. [The book] is the story of hardships -- of starting over, of poverty, of rural life -- but is also the story of success, of how people determined to build real communities and to set things right helped to establish the right of black Americans to participate as full citizens in the American South."
