In the decade after World War II, the entrepreneurial Levitt family helped thousands of people achieve the American dream of owning a home, in storybook suburbs they built from scratch, with affordable little houses and all the modern conveniences-and a firm whites-only policy. In the summer heat of 1957, a Jewish Communist family in Levittown, Pennsylvania, secretly arranged for an African-American family to move in next door to them, in a pink house on Deep-green Lane. The explosive reaction in the weeks that followed would lead to the downfall of a titan, and a triumph of civil rights in the world's most famous suburb. Book jacket.
