Covenant Communities

Fri, 23 Dec 1994 18:26:41 -0600

A friend told me a story today about a Black family in Texas a
year or two ago who bought a home from a white family in what
is called a `covenant community'. To keep the Black family
out, the community went to court, suing on the basis of the
fine print in the community charter.

Is anyone familiar with this story who can provide a citation?

Is anyone familiar, and know much/anything about the literature
on covenant communities in the USA. I would be grateful to
any leads people might have.
