CAMBRIDGE, MA – Despite years of intensive racial integration efforts, new patterns of segregation are being established in metropolitan Boston. That’s the finding in a new study on housing and segregation trends to be released at a May 30 press briefing at Harvard University.

The report is one of three produced by The Civil Rights Project at Harvard University in conjunction with the Kennedy School of Government and CommUNITY 2000. The other studies cover housing and segregation trends in Chicago and San Diego. Results from the Boston report will be released at a press briefing May 30 at Harvard Law School. The event will be held at 10:30 a.m. in Hauser Hall, Room 104, 1575 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge.
