This historic publication consists of case studies of a sampling of situations where nonwhites had been able to exercise freedom of residential choice. These case studies were meant as useful guidelines for the housing industry as it transitioned to an open-occupancy system after the passage of The Executive Order on Equal Opportunity in Housing and an increasing number of state and local ordinances outlawing discrimination in housing.
