Currently viewing results 1 - 1
Underbounding is a form of residential segregation created by the land-use policies and practices of larger, wealthier, and predominately white municipalities that draw their boundaries in such a way to keep their neighbors out. Moore County is an example where African American communities including Midway, Jackson, and Hamlet, lack basic sanitation services and decent roads. These communities lie just beyond the boundaries of wealthier towns like Pinehurst and Aberdeen. Morgan discusses the progress to improve these communities that is occurring through federal grants and lobbying of local Moore County governments.
