What does the reverse Great Migration mean for urbanism?

African-Americans are leaving Northern cities and heading back to the South. What kind of life will they lead there?

When I look around, I mostly see only one type of person associated with the urbanist label: young, white, and male. Not many young, black and female, like me. It shouldn't be that way.
