Abstract

Relatively little is known about the long-term effects of school desegregation on black adult lifestyles and life chances. For example, does school segregation perpetuate itself across stages of the life cycle and across different institutional settings? Does school segregation constrain the career educational and occupational aspirations and attainments of blacks? These important issues have only recently begun to receive empirical research attention. This article reviews research on the effects of school desegregation on southern blacks, with particular emphasis on recent evidence from several large-scale national surveys. Results are discussed in terms of their implications for social policy and racial equity.
