I believe you are correct! "The first large migration of African Americans from the South occurred soon after Reconstruction ended. At that time, more than 50,000 African Americans moved west toward Kansas and the Oklahoma territory. Some of these migrants were known as "Exodusters." This was a reference to the Biblical book of Exodus and to the dry landscape of the Great Plains. The town of Nicodemus, Kansas, was one of the first towns settled by African Americans who had left the South. African Americans continued to migrate during the final years of the 19th century. Some traveled west as far as California. Many others moved to cities in the North and Midwest, hoping to find jobs in the growing industries there." (these notes are from my old History textbook)
