Review by Galen Martin
The beauty of the new book by the Harvard Project on School Desegregation is its unique tie between the increase in efforts to dismantle desegregation and the failure of housing desegregation to keep pace with school desegregation.
The July settlement resolves a complaint filed with the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) by the Miami-based Florida Justice Institute.
Joseph and Eda Pell, the owners of the 454-unit apartment complex; Julia Ellis, the complex's on-site manager; and Cindy Gray, Skylark's property manager, signed the settlement in late June after a federal lawsuit was filed by Joanne Karlsrud and Fair Housing of Marin, a private fair housing group in San Rafael, California.
