Immigration during the two world wars

Beginning in World War I (1914-1918), large numbers of Southern blacks began migrating to the state to escape prejudice and poverty. Settling mostly in New York City, blacks were subjected to less discrimination in New York than in the South but were regarded by many people as second-class citizens.

The New York City neighborhood of Harlem became the center of black cultural life, attracting many writers and artists.

A similar migration of blacks from the South occurred during and after World War II (1939-1945), as New York became an important producer of military supplies for the defense industry. Large numbers of Puerto Ricans also arrived in the 1950s and 1960s seeking jobs, and most settled in New York City. "New York" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
