This timeline is by no means meant to serve as an official history or a complete understanding of segregation in Oakland. It should start a conversation around why segregation in both schools and neighborhoods is so harmful, why it has persisted for so long, and what policy changes can reverse it. Please feel free to send comments and suggestions on how to improve it. (The timeline was created with the support of Talia Leibovitz, as UC Berkeley graduate student in the Graduate School of Education).
