Civil Rights’ Stepchild
This introductory chapter presents some arguments made by New York Human Rights Commissioner Eleanor Holmes Norton during the sixth annual meeting of National Neighbors, an initiative bringing together racially integrated communities from across the country. She pleaded for an open neighborhood integration as increasing numbers of middle-class African Americans were making their homes in previously all-white areas. Northwest Philadelphia's West Mount Airy is one of the first neighborhoods in the United States to embrace this integrationist mission. By replacing residential segregation with residential integration, the West Mount Airy residents deviated from the system of racial separation, and lived their lives experiencing interracial living.
