520 |a"What happens to their social and political attitudes when African Americans become better educated, more affluent, and move to wealthy, largely white suburbs? In this study of affluent African Americans who live in suburbs that remain predominately white, Ernest McGowen shows that they maintain their connections with African American institutions in the inner city and largely minority "black ring" suburbs and tend not to develop attitudes that match those of their white suburban neighbors. Indeed, despite attaining levels of education and affluence that enable them to live among white people of a similar socio-economic status, these African Americans find their race remains a defining marker in their lives and their politics. They seek to maintain connections to institutions and groups that enable them to feel connected to those who share their experience of race in America."--Provided by publisher.
