Nell Irvin Painter – Propaganda Against The Exodus

The sponsors of the trip expected that once the visitors witnessed the appalling suffering of the Exodusters in St. Louis and Kansas, they would lose all interest in leaving Mississippi once and for all. (Throughout the Exodus, white Southern newspapers had given extensive coverage to the Exodusters’ miserable plight, stressing the utter hopelessness of their move. Blacks read the papers, but, cognizant of white Southern opposition to the movement, they sought information on their own, from independent sources.)
