  6. In the two decades between 1910 and 1930, over ten per cent of the Black population of the South, where the United States left the preponderance of the black population had been located, largest number moving, it is claimed, between 1916 and 1918. It has been frequency assumed, but not proved, that the majority of the migrants in what has come to be called the Great Migration came from rural areas and were motivated by two concurrent factors: the collapse of the cotton industry following the boll weevil infestation, which began in 1898, and increased demand in the North for labour following the cessation by the of European immigration caused outbreak of the First world war in 1914. This assumption has led to the conclusion that the migrants, subsequent lack of economic mobility in the North is tired to rural background, a background that implies unfamiliarity with urban living and a lack of industrial skills.


  7. But the question of who actually left the South has never been rigorously investigated Although numerous investigations document an exodus from rural southern areas to Southern cities prior to the Great Migration, no one has considered whether the same migrants then moved on to northern cities. In 1910 over 600,000 black workers, or ten per cent of the black work force, reported themselves to be engaged in "manufacturing and mechanical pursuits," the federal census category roughly encompassing the entire industrial sector. The Great Migration could easily have been made up entirely of this group and their families. It is perhaps surprising to argue that an employed population could be enticed to move, but an explanation lies in the labour conditions then prevalent in the South


  8. About thirty-five per cent of the urban black population in the South was engaged in skilled trades. Some were from the old artisan class of slavery blacksmiths, masons, carpenters-which had a monopoly of certain trades, but they were gradually being pushed out by competition, mechanization, and obsolescence. The remaining sixty-five per cent, more recently urbanized worked in newly developed industries-tobacco, lumber, coal and iron manufacture, and railroads. Wages in the South, however, were low, and black workers were aware, through labour recruiters and the black press, that they could earn more even as unskilled workers in the North than they could as artisans in the South.


  9. After the boll weevil infestation, urban black workers faced competition from the continuing influx of both black and white rural workers, who were driven to trial jobs. Thus, a move be seen as advantageous to a group that was already urbanized and steadily employed, and the easy conclusion tying their subsequent economic problems in the North to their rural background comes into question.


  10. Q. 1 Consider the following statements regarding the wages in Southern cities in 1910 1. They had begun to rise so that Southern industry could attract rural workers 2. They had increased in newly developed industries but decreased in the older trades. 3. They were being pushed lower as a result of increased competition 4. They had increased for skilled workers but decreased for unskilled workers. Which of the above statement(s) is/ are correct, as per the passage? [A1 2 and 4 [B] 1 and 2 [C] Only 2 [D] Only 3


  11. Q. 2 This question consists of an Assertion (A) and a Reason (R). Indicate your answer by selecting the correct alternative Assertion (A): The migrants' subsequent lack of economic mobility in the North is tied to their rural background Reason (R): People with rural backgrounds are less likely to succeed economically in cities than are those with urban backgrounds [A] Both A and R are right and R is the correct explanation for A [B] Both A and R are right but R is not the correct explanation for A [C] A is right but R is wrong [D] A is wrong but R is right


  12. Q. 3 Consider the following possible influences in a black worker's decision to migrate North in the Great Migration, as given in the passage 1. Labour recruiters. 2. Voting rights in the Northern states. 3. The black press. 4. Wage levels in the Northern cities. Which of the above statements are true? [A] 1, 3 and 4 [B] 1 and 2 [C] Only 4 [D] Only 1


  13. Q. 4 According to information given in the passage, which of the following is a correct sequence of groups of workers, from lowest paid to highest paid, in the period between 1910 and 1930? [A] Unskilled rural workers in the North and South; unskilled urban workers in the North and South; Artisans in the North and South [B] Unskilled workers in the South; unskilled workers in the North; Artisans in the South; artisans in the North [C] Unskilled workers in the South; unskilled workers in the North; Artisans in the North and South D] Artisans in the South; unskilled workers in the North; artisans in the North


  14. Q. 5 Consider the following statements regarding the Great Migration 1. Of the black workers living in Southern cities, only those in a small number of trades were threatened by obsolesc 2. It is not true that the term "manufacturing and mechanical pursuits" actually encompasses the entire industrial sector. 3. It is uncertain how many people actually migrated during the Great Migration. 4. It is not likely that people with steady jobs would have Reason to move to another area of the country Which of the above statements does the author anticipate to be an objection to her argument? [A] Only 2 [C] 1 and 2 ence [B] Only 4 [D] 2 and 3
