De Facto Segregation


Although schools were integrated in the 1960s, redlining (the practice of denying a creditworthy applicant a loan for housing in a certain neighborhood) was used to make sure blacks did not purchase houses in white subdivisions.  Public pools were also made private in an attempt to keep the color lines separate and work around the integration laws.  In this episode, Dr. Peter Weinstein and Dr. Phillip Nelson discuss a few forms of de facto segregation and touch on what it was really like growing up during the ’60s and ’70s.  Join us for another Courageous Conversation and continue to share!
