The great migration of African Americans from the deep south to the industrialized north and Midwest. Bringing with it there music, culture, and linguistics uniqueness. “Direct address, tonal semantics, directness, sinifyin, and narrative sequencing create distinct genres of music and code meshing in writing. Blues form, stories of tricksters, in-yo-face interactions with an audience, and African Americanized notions of freedom and struggle are just a few examples” (Kynard 367). With the migration of African Americans came their language and culture came change. The language was frowned upon and the conditions were not that much better, but there was plenty of words and phrases that stuck along with the popularity of the music.
