School and Housing Desegregation in Four Southern Cities
Using primary and secondary sources like newspaper articles, school board minutes, policy reports, interviews and books, this chapter outlines key school desegregation characteristics of Richmond, Louisville, Charlotte and Chattanooga. The differing school district boundary line arrangements are emphasized alongside a discussion of how those configurations developed. The chapter also explores how similar early school desegregation histories in each of the metros gave way to very different approaches in later years. Major policy shifts are highlighted, and an overview of limited efforts in two of the metros to address housing segregation in conjunction with school segregation is provided.
