Dallas's Black Neighborhoods Failed to Deliver
A Dallas editorial in the late 1940's stated, "Wherever two very different races are called upon to exist side by side...segregration is the sensible solution." The new black neighborhoods in Dallas of Arlington Park and Hamilton Park were supposed to alleviate crowding, and offer businesses, churches schools, picnic areas and more. But the promises of middle-class black neighborhoods in Dallas could not overcome the effects of intense segregation.
