Residential segregation historically occupies a key position in patterns of race relations in the urban United States. It not only inhibits the development of informal,neighborly relations between white people and African Americans, but ensures the segregation of a variety of public and private facilities. Th e clientele of schools,hospitals, libraries, parks, and stores is determined in large part by the racial composition of the neighborhood in which they are located. Problems created by residential segregation are the focus of this work.
