Racial Democracy and the Black Metropolis
Book Description:

Racial Democracy and the Black Metropolis examines housing debates in Chicago, showing how class and factional conflicts among African Americans actually helped to reproduce stunning segregation along economic lines. Preston H. Smith II reveals a surprising picture of black civic leaders who singled out racial segregation as the source of African Americans’ inadequate housing rather than attacking class inequalities.
