In response to the oil bust of the early 1980s and especially the much-delayed desegregation of Houston schools, neighborhood boundaries and demographics in the 1980s underwent reorganization. The overlapping processes of suburbanization from the mid-1970s and economic fallout in Houston in the 1980s contributed to sweeping change across the metropolis. These transformations nonetheless reinforced an entrenched culture of racial residential segregation.
