Summary Description

The dissertation "Making a New Haven: Post World War II Black Migration, Historical Memory, Community Building and Activism in the Late 20th Century" explores the impact of Southern black migrants on New Haven's African American community. It highlights how migrants transferred historical memory and cultural traditions, focusing on the role of family and community networks, and Southern-born educators in fostering civic responsibility and leadership among black youth. The work connects the cultural legacy of the South to New Haven's responses to sociopolitical and economic challenges, underscoring the continuity of black historical consciousness and its influence on community activism and political engagement.
