Pressestimmen"Sernett makes a persuasive argument for moving beyond an understanding of the Great Migration as a subfield of urban studies, concerned exclusively with issues of race and class, ghetto formation, and labor issues. The reader is reminded of the significant but often ignored impact of the Great Migration on culture and cultural institutions in the African-American context." - Lewis V. Baldwin, Vanderbilt University "This work... synthesizes important material that scholars of African American religious studies need in book form." - Dennis C. Dickerson
