Journal of Negro Education, v71 n1-2 p43-59 Win-Spr 2002
Surveyed middle to upper middle class African Americans at three times following a 2000 court decision to desegregate schools in Louisiana's Lafayette Parish. Results indicated that although reactions were initially largely positive, these reactions turned negative after the reality of implementation (e.g., closing of black schools, busing of black students, and transferring of personnel solely based on race).
