The Burlington Self-Survey in Human Relations: Interracial Efforts for Constructive Community Change, 1949-1951

by Katrina M. Sanders

Katrina M. Sanders describes a community self-survey that residents of Burlington conducted in 1949-1951 to monitor the town's racial climate. The project was initiated locally by both black and white residents and drew on the resources of one of the nation's leading African American institutions of higher education. The citywide survey revealed discriminatory practices in Burlington, initiated a dialogue between African Americans and whites on race-related issues, and supplied data that made it possible to secure support for community change.
