Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Here is the first extensive examination of the impact of the Great Migration--the movement from South to North and from country to city by hundreds of thousands of African Americans following World War I--on the American religious landscape. BOUND FOR THE PROMISED LAND sheds new light on various components of the development of black religion, including philanthropic endeavors to "modernize" the southern black rural church. .
