In Shades of White Flight, sociologist Mark T. Mulder investigates a case of "white flight" where seven church congregations from one denomination, the Christian Reformed Church, left Chicago en masse in the 1960s and 70s and relocated their churches in nearby suburbs. Using a wealth of both archival and interview data, Mulder examines the migration of these Chicago church members, revealing how their churches not only failed to inhibit white flight, but actually facilitated the congregations' departure.
