This study deals with the effects of the neighborhood stabilization movement, which was meant to help maintain community racial integration. It is the first socio-historical analysis of the movement and the factors that lead to success or failure in maintaining community racial integration. Using case studies, it examines the impact of the movement on both the community and national levels and offers policy implications and a strategy for maintaining racial integration in urban neighborhoods based on the study's findings. While it includes quantitative data, this work also reveals the feelings and hopes of the people involved.
