Abstract

This study examines whether the Dallas Housing Authority has succeeded in providing adequate housing for black families in Dallas, Texas. Furthermore, this research examines whether the Dallas Housing Authority has complied with the Walker v. HUD, 734 F. Supp 1289 (N.D., TX. 1989) suit in building public housing in nonminority areas despite opposition from other pressure groups. This study begins with the premise that the Dallas Housing Authority is adequately providing public housing to black families in Dallas County, Texas. A case-study approach was used to analyze data gathered to determine whether equality and fair housing are being practiced by the Dallas Housing Authority, although opposing viewpoints would indicate otherwise. The researcher's conclusion supports the premise that the Dallas Housing Authority is meeting the needs of black families in providing adequate low-income housing on a temporary basis.
