Race, Place and Opportunity: Racial Change and Segregation in the Chicago Metropolitan Area: 1990-2000
- Author(s): McArdle, Nancy
- et al.
The future of the Chicago area is inexorably linked to the well-being of its minority populations, most strongly in the cities and inner-suburbs, but increasingly throughout the region. While high levels of racial segregation continue to plague inner cities, recent trends raise the specter that this pattern may be duplicated in growing suburbs. Actions at all levels are needed to assure equal access to neighborhoods and educational opportunities and to facilitate stabilization of communities.
