Abstract

Data gathered in two long-integrated northern high schools which are one-sixth Negro indicate more formal than informal interracial association. Negroes participate and hold office in non-academic school organizations as frequently as white students, Sociometric choices of both races show in-group preference that increases with intimacy of the relation, but the in-group preference of Negroes exceeds that of whites. The hypothesis of a significant negative relationship between elementary school segregation and Negro students' high school participation, office-holding and sociometric choice of white classmates is not supported, but there is as predicted a significant negative relation between elementary school segregation and number of sociometric choices received from whites.
