North Carolina Historical Review

Drawing extensively on contemporary studies and publications, government reports, and documentary sources....Sernett captures the magnitude of institutional chaos manifest in this critical period of change. Part of the book's usefulness is its exhaustive rendering of the range of studies conducted and analyses offered by scholars and agencies....The book's strength...is its point that the black church was forever changed by the Great Migration....Sernett's contribution significantly enhances readers' understanding of this intriguing dimension of the Great Migration.
