Originally published in 1945 as "They Seek a City," this classic was revised and expanded in 1966 to include chapters on Marcus Garvey, the Black Muslims, Malcolm X, and the racial disturbances in Detroit, Chicago, and Watts. Filled with stories about real men and women who sought a new life in the North, "Anyplace But Here" depicts the theme of hope, undercut by disappointment, and hope renewed as it details the African American's search for a home.

"An eloquent explanation of the processes of migration."--Horace Cayton


"The cityward trend of African Americans in recent years has been fantastic, and the city has provided the setting for the current struggle for equality. . . . Bontemps and Conroy have given us an excellent account, rich in drama as well as detail, of one of the really great migrations of all times."--John Hope Franklin


"Bontemps and Conroy crossed the borders of race, culture and class to join as coauthors when such crossings carried great risks, as they inevitably do for those who venture first. . . .
