The Consequences of Controversy Accompanying Institutional Change: The Case of School Desegregation.
Crain, Robert L.; Mahard, Rita E.
American Sociological Review, v47 n6 p697-708 Dec 1982
A survey of Southern biracial high schools found that community conflict early in the desegregation process is associated with lower racial tension and Black student alienation later on. Authors hypothesize that conflict creates stronger cohesion within the Black community and greater support for desegregation, leading to less tension in the schools. (Author/GC)
