From the Paper:

"Throughout history, African American women have been exposed to a myriad of experiences that have shaped their lives in the United States. From Slavery to Freedom, many African American women struggled to overcome the various prejudices, and obstacles that have strove to halt their aspirations. Following the abolishment of slavery in the United States, a large population of African Americans found they were facing the dilemma of what the near future would bring. Consequently, many freedmen and women had resolved to migrate to the Western United States, to start a new life in this vast land of opportunity."
