Description:

This article by Jim Schlosser appeared in the August 20, 1989, Greensboro News & Record, and concerns a University of Chicago study that showed the Triad area was one of the least segregated metropolitan areas in the United States, as measured by housing patterns. The local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) did not dispute the finding, but noted that subtle racism was still a factor in the area despite residential trends.


This article was clipped and saved in a scrapbook on race relations by Clarence “Curly” Harris, manager of the Greensboro Woolworth store at the time of the 1960 sit-ins that spawned lunch counter sit-ins across the South and rejuvenated the civil rights movement.
