Crisis in Levittown, 1957
Context: Levittowns were affordable, working-class, and white communities set up in suburban areas primarily in the North. The founder of Levittowns, William Levitt, was the biggest homebuilder in the U.S. in the 1950s. More than 100,000 Levittown homes were built in the decade. Despite the size, Levittowns were almost exclusively white in the 1950s. This video was about white reaction to a few African Americans moving into a Levittown community.
