Housing Segregation: The Great Migration and Beyond
Between 1910 and 1960, the Great Migration saw 6 million African Americans move from the rural South to the industrial North. Through public policy and private action, the black migrants were largely segregated into neighborhoods that were almost exclusively black.

But 45 years of the federal housing discrimination ban has failed to break up that segregation.
