The Stability of Students' Interracial Friendships.
Hallinan, Maureen T.; Williams, Richard A.
American Sociological Review, v52 n5 p653-64 Oct 1987
This longitudinal study of fourth through seventh graders in desegregated classrooms showed that interracial friendships are almost as stable as same-race friendships. The stability of both types is influenced by classroom characteristics. Schools can adopt policies that promote friendships between Black and White students. (Author/VM)
