Timothy B. Neary

"Black-Belt Catholic Space: African-American Parishes in Interwar Chicago"
The Great Migration of African Americans from the rural South to the urban North during and after World War I dramatically altered Chicago's demographic makeup. African Americans moved into areas previously occupied by Euro-Americans, creating a "Black Belt" on the city's South Side. Neary's article examines how rural, Protestant migrants during the interwar period adopted and adapted urban Catholic spaces in former Irish-American neighborhoods.
If you plan to attend, please request a copy of the seminar paper by sending an e-mail to Adam Stewart, firstname.lastname@example.org
