Wells, Amy Stuart; Crain, Robert L.
Review of Educational Research, v64 n4 p531-55 Win 1994
This review brings together 21 studies on the long-term effects of school desegregation on the life chances of African American students. These studies draw on perpetuation theory, a macro-micro theory of racial segregation. They support the idea that interracial contact in school can help blacks overcome perpetual segregation. (SLD)
