Strategies of Segregation

University of California Press

This chapter investigates the White architects' public and private actions to link residential and school segregation. Specifically, the chapter exposes the racial covenants burdening the west-side properties of the very school and city officials who designed the blueprints for school segregation, and argues that they colluded to discriminate against Mexicans in perpetuity. Considering the link between school and residential segregation across four decades, from the 1920s through the 1950s, this chapter explores the subtle and stunning spatial mechanisms of mundane racism in Oxnard. It also analyzes various oral accounts of Mexican women and men who recalled navigating racially segregated spaces in Oxnard from the 1930s to the 1960s.

Keywords:   residential segregation, school segregation, racial covenants, spatial mechanisms, mundane racism, oral accounts, Mexicans
