In Shelley v. Kraemer (1948), the Court held that racial restrictive covenants could not be enforced in the courts, yet their legacies continue. Current neighborhoods continue to reflect the patterns of housing segregation and social amenities and economic investment lags. The panelists will discuss these and other lingering effects of these devices.
