Book Overview
This book is a powerful, distressing analysis of the decline of black opportunity in metropolitan Atlanta and reveals how, even as the region prospered, the prospects for a good job, decent housing, and quality education actually diminished for a growing number of poor blacks. The evidence of this five-year research effort reveals that segregation and discrimination remain potent structural forces.
