The Influence of Segregation on Growth Patterns
The Baltimore Sun reports how testimony and reports during the trial in Baltimore on discrimination claims of public housing residents reveal "how decisions on public housing in the segregated 1940's influenced patterns of growth for years." The article provides a quick history of the city's first public housing developments, which were "the worst of any of the country's seven largest industrial centers, with the worst conditions in the black slums that hugged downtown." At the time, "one in five residents was black, compared with two of three today."
