    1. Pattillo is one of the favorite authors of our instructors. We have read from her works several times. She grew up middle class and wanted to answer the question why did she finish school and become a professional and why did too many of her classmates go down a more dire road? He answer is the stark differences between the white and black middle classes. The black middle class still has close ties to the lower class. It's an eye opening look at what is gong in America.

    2. From a roundup review I did at the end of 2013 on NextCity.What I wrote about this book:Black Picket Fences is a reissue. Pattillo completed her research for the first volume in 1999, and recently revisited her subject cohort in order to issue this update, with an extended afterword where she catches us up with some of its characters.Pattillo, a sociologist, takes as her subject the Groveland neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side. Her original volume dealt with the pressure of white racism to k [...]

    3. After moving to East Harlem and becoming surrounded by a decidedly different demographic than the Morningside Heights population, I wanted to find a book that would offer a modern appraisal of urban poverty and growth in primarily black America. After a brief search of well-recommended books, I came across Black Picket Fences which is a sociologist's case study of black middle class America, set in Groveland, a South Side Chicago suburb where 99% of the population is black. While Pattillo-McCoy [...]

    4. This is an eye-opening account of a middle class, black neighborhood in suburban Chicago. Shows how the black middle class is closely tied with the lower class, moreso than in the white community. I enjoyed the first hand accounts from the citizens of Groveland. Important sociological work.

    5. Although I enjoyed this book, it seems a little dated now. I'd love to see an updated study of the same area of Chicago.

    6. I read this in college. I think I want to read it again. Gotta see if I ever sold it back or if it's on my bookshelf somewhere.
