Side By Side: Integrated Neighborhoods in America.
Bradburn, Norman M.; And Others
This book reports the results of a study on the characteristics of racially integrated neighborhoods in an attempt to discover whether, and under what conditions, blacks and whites can live together. The communities studied had anywhere from one or two black families to more than ten percent. Integrated rural areas mostly in the South were not given as much attention as urban areas. Data were collected by interviewing neighborhood leaders and residents. In presenting the findings, the book first focuses on the profiles of six neighborhoods that represent the many others studied. Then, statistical estimates of the extent of integrated housing are given; in most cases, the whites far outnumber the blacks. White hostility toward black residents and demographic differences in the neighborhoods are analyzed. Racial attitudes and the participation in community institutions (schools, churches, etc.) are examined. In particular, the development and support of integrated schools are described. (Authors/JW)
