Fair housing law is an overlooked example of cooperative federalism, which has evolved over time, and its history can be divided into four major developmental stages: a federal phase beginning with the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Amendments, a progressive state and local period extending from the 1920s to the late 1960s, a third phase led by the national government and characterized by the passage of landmark federal legislation, and a fourth period in which state and local civil rights agencies have become indispensable. State and local fair housing accomplishments in the second and fourth stages have been largely ignored, but this progress is directly relevant to combatting future discrimination. Finally, the fair housing movement has been evolutionary, and when one level of government has made little headway, another level has assisted in slowly nudging it along.
