Metropolitan School Desegregation, Past and Present

(p.1) Introduction
When the Fences Come Down

Genevieve Siegel-Hawley

University of North Carolina Press

The introduction provides an overview of key legal cases and historical concepts related to metropolitan school desegregation. It also presents the rationale behind contemporary regionalism and discusses how the two movements overlap and differ. The central argument of the book—that new evidence related to the success of metropolitan school desegregation efforts in combating both housing and school segregation must inform the regional agenda—follows. The introduction closes with a synopsis of the significance of the South and the four metro areas examined throughout the book.

Keywords:   Regionalism, Segregation, Metropolitan school desegregation, Southern metropolitan areas, Education law, Brown v. Board of Education, Milliken v. Bradley
