A San Jose State University sociologist is documenting African-American migration from Louisiana to San Francisco Bay Area before the 1980s and the subsequent resettlement experiences of the migrants.
- If you or your parents migrated from Louisiana and settled in the San Francisco Bay Area prior to the 1980s, you are invited to participate in a research study conducted by Faustina M. DuCros, Ph.D., an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Interdisciplinary Social Sciences at San José State University.
- The purpose of this research study is to document the migration and re-settlement experiences of migrants and children of migrants from Louisiana in the San Francisco Bay Area.
- If you volunteer for this research study, you will be asked to participate in an audio-recorded life history interview that will last about two hours; in some cases additional sessions may be needed to complete the life history. During the interview, you will be asked about your background, your migration experiences or those of your parents, and your experiences in the Bay Area. The interview will be conducted at a time and location convenient for you.
- Participation is entirely voluntary and confidential. You may stop your participation at any time without penalty.
- If you have questions or would like to participate, please contact:Faustina DuCros, Ph.D.
