Summary

Examined in this book is the phenomenon of black suburbanization. Opposing forces which propel and inhibit the movement of blacks to suburbs are considered. The origins, characteristics, and conditions of the black population now residing in the nation's suburbs are documented. Recent trends are discussed in the context of the massive shifts and their impact on the demographic balance among regions, between central cities and suburbs, and between metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas. Interregional differences in changing black suburban populations are described. Case study investigations of several major metropolitan areas are presented and several hypotheses and myths regarding black suburbanization are explored. In addition, facts related to black migration such as poverty, employment opportunities, and housing conditions are examined. Black-white differentials in suburban housing are also discussed. Finally, the degree to which class may supplant race in governing suburban prospects is considered. A bibiliography is provided. (Author/EB)
