9. Frances A. Kellor, “Southern Colored Girls in the North,” Bulletin of the Inter-Municipal Committee on Household Research (May 1905): 5-9.
First of three articles warning African American women in the South who may be tempted to respond to advertisements promising good pay for domestic work in Northern cities to exercise due caution. The article states that many women who have signed up with employment agencies are swindled out of their investment or reduced to peonage after they make the trip north.
