Excerpt from Phelps-Stokes Fellowship Studies, Vol. 30: Negro Migration
In the past, the farmers of Georgia have usually 'had a plentiful supply of labor. Each year found them wit-h a labor supply suffi cient to operate the farms, and in many cases more land could be cleared and easily taken care of by the labor supply then present. The idea of ever having a shortage of labor was foreign to most of them. Everyone seemed to be satisfied with conditions as they were. Then there came, almost in one year, a very distinct shortage of negro farm labor. The negro who had once so willingly farmed the land, left for cities or other sections.
This condition presented a very serious problem for the farmer. It was known that the negro liked to move from farm to farm, but there had been very little migration from any section. No negro migration has ever taken place that has caused as much concern and study. Various studies have been made as to the causes underlying the movement, but there are so many factors entering into the problem that definite conclusions are hard to reach.
