Black Picket FencesBlack Picket Fences :
Privilege and Peril Among the Black Middle Class

Why, after fifty years of progress in civil rights in America, are the black and white middle classes still separate and unequal? A new book by sociologist Mary Pattillo-McCoy, Black Picket Fences: Privilege and Peril among the Black Middle Class, is a rare look at the life of the black middle class. The book is based on her three years of participant-research in a Chicago neighborhood.
