Former magnets for black migrants, including Illinois, Michigan, New York and California, all have had black population declines. Atlanta has even overtaken Chicago as the city with the second-largest black population behind New York City. The black population in Atlanta has grown in the past decade by 473,493. In Dallas it grew by 233,890, and in Houston by 214,928 over the same period. Today, 57 percent of the country’s black population lives in the South, a 50-year high, according to the most recent census data. Today’s migrants are chasing the same things their forebears sought decades earlier, according to those who have studied the return migration. Others are retiring or returning to familial homesteads, reclaiming land their relatives never let loose. « There are places like Harlem that no longer have majority black populations because many of the black folks who have lived there for the last 50 or so years have decided to cash in, and they are going to live somewhere more affordable, places that don’t come with the urban baggage that maybe we didn’t ever want but put up with because this was our best chance at a solid economic future, » said Khalil Muhammad, director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Technorati, part of the New York Public Library and renowned for its collections of historic artifacts. « Those people are going to places that look just the way they want them to look. They are not going to be shackled by a political nationalism or the segregation of the past. » (« Chicago’s Great Migration: Blacks Leaving Historic Neighborhoods To Return South » , Trymaine Lee, The Huffington Post)
