Re: [OH] Researching AA's in Ohio

In 2000 University Press of Va Press published a book entitled Bound Away...VA and the Western Movement written by DAvid Hackett Fischer and James C. Kelly. The book is based on an exhibit that was held at the VA Historical Society in Richmond. It studies three sets of migration, one to VA, migration within the state and migration out of the state to the west. Although by and large it details with white migration (and you will have to study that migration) he includes a chapter on African American migration. Probably available thru inter-library loan at at your public library. I have something else here which might apply but will have to try to find it.
