Description: 

The city of Detroit was a major manufacturing center during most of the 20th century, making it a magnet for many of the African-Americans who moved from the South to northern cities. The narrator refers to the "ghettoes" of Detroit as one of the places (along with those of "New York and Chicago and Los Angeles") to which the Negro tenant farmers and "furnish-hands" who worked in Yoknapatawpha's fields have moved by the 1930s (193).
