Haiti a beautiful island paradise and land of plenty? I've been there. A more desolate land I've never experienced . . . . . dusty, deforested, poverty-stricken, with hovels and beggars on every street corner. What happened?

Thank you.

Your observation and question is worthy of a book. I don't think I'd have the heart to read it, though. At the time of Dr. Woodson's writing, however, Haiti was progressing. It's all a subject for great debate, but the American departure in 1934 allowed true brutality to flourish.

Uploaded Section 08 Migration of the talented tenth
https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/negromigration_08_woodson_128kb.mp3 31.00

I didn't understand the title at first but found:
The Talented Tenth is a term that designated a leadership class of African Americans in the early 20th century. The term was created by Northern philanthropists, then publicized by W. E. B. Du Bois in an influential essay of the same name, which he published in September 1903. (Wikipedia) Du Bois used the term "the talented tenth" to describe the likelihood of one in ten black men becoming leaders of their race in the world, through methods such as continuing their education, writing books, or becoming directly involved in social change.

Thank you for the recording ... and the background. I was familiar with the term and have mixed feelings towards it. Considering the time in which it was used, however, I can see why this was stressed.

Hi, Kevin, In the MW, "Tenth" is missing from the title. I wondered what that chapter was about, the Migration Of The Talented.

Got me to thinking, people migrate into places, people migrate out of places. Some people stay where they are no matter what the circumstances. My parents migrated to the deep south from the north. I migrated to college in a different town and have been here ever since. My husband migrated here from Texas. People moving around all the time, for all kinds of reasons. How on earth can the infrastructure of each town expand and contract to handle all this movement. :shock:

It's . . . . . a puzzlement.

It is a puzzlement. Not having any current ties with landfall areas, I still wonder why its people keep rebuilding after hurricanes and floods. The repeated trauma must be tremendous, yet the folks rebuild and rebuild.

In my limited experience viewing the Rust Belt, I see what happens when families give up hope and see no prospect on another horizon. It's in that hopelessness that much of the opiate scourge finds its first foothold.

I think its the optimistic core of human nature.
In my stock market Day Trading years there were frequent scornful references to the attitude "Things will be different this year."
