dc.description.abstractThis study is an exploratory study to examine settlement house directors' perceptions of discrimination against Negroes in their communities and the actions their agencies were taking to decrease discrimination. The study thus fell into two broad areas. The first part of the study explored the directors' perceptions of the discrimination against Negroes in their communities in housing, education, employment and other areas . This part of the study was based on the assumption that discrimination did exist in some form and did not try to examine or describe that discrimination objectively. The study was rather focused upon the directors' own perceptions of discrimination. The study did not attempt to explore the directors' own prejudices or discriminatory practices, for this would have required an evaluative study of attitudes and a different research design and different techniques from those used in the study.
