The practice of exclusionary zoning, including single-family zoning laws, started as a reaction to a lawsuit here, Buchanan v. Warley. The case that would shape housing policy in America for the next century started in 1914 when the city of Louisville passed an ordinance that barred African-Americans from moving onto a predominantly white city block.
