African-American migration for education

Another project I'd love someone to do (and John Rury is doing part of it right now): what strategies did African American families use to increase educational attainment at mid-century? In particular, is there any way to quantify the migration of teens to relatives living in Southern (or Nothern) cities as a way to acquire a high-school education?
