The Great Migration was one of the most significant population shifts of the 20th century. In the 1930s and 1940s, African-Americans migrated out of the South and settled throughout the United States.

Now, a University of Michigan study shows that the Great Migration helped the next generation, the children of those men and women who left the South.
