Racial Housing Segregation in Northern Metropolitan Cities

The precarious state of poverty in which the South was left after the Civil War caused many African Americans to move to the North, an area seemingly against slavery that had its moral ideals challenged when faced with fleeing southern African Americans looking to live among these local Northerners. This propelled Northern metropolitan cities with vast resources to be responsible for the worst cases of housing segregation against African Americans in contemporary America. Northern metropolitan cities remain racially segregated and updated legislation needs to be implemented as social change has not proven to be enough since the Civil Rights Movement initiatives.
