Leibbrand and Tolnay's work on the impact of the Great Migration on second generation outcomes published in Demography, highlighted on CityLab

Christine Leibbrand and Stew Tolnay have publisehd a paper in Demography that examines long-term economic and social effects of the Great Migration on the migrants’ children.
