The Fair Housing Act at 50: Not Sufficiently Powerful to Reverse Residential Racial Segregation
During the mid-twentieth century, most Americans came to understand that racial segregation was wrong, harmful, and unconstitutional. In a series of court cases, we abolished segregation first in public law schools, then in public graduate schools, then in colleges and universities, then (in 1954) in elementary and secondary schools. These cases were followed by civil rights acts that abolished segregation on trains and buses, in restaurants and other public accommodations, in facilities like water fountains, and in employment.
