Like many landmark accomplishments, Title VIII of the 1968 Civil Rights Act has spawned a level of indirect activity whose benefits greatly expand the reach of the fair housing movement. Title VIII did not invent the idea of fair housing, but it certainly brought that idea to the forefront of our social conscience and stimulated attention to a much broader range of fair housing issues. I report here on one of these secondary effects of Title VIII, the Mount Laurel movement in New Jersey.
