This paper examines black-white differences in patterns of educational mobility over the course of the 20th Century. In contrast to previous studies, I compare racial mobility flows across the entire schooling distribution using a standardized mobility metric suited for over-time comparisons. The mobility metric is based on transitions between parents’ and offspring’s relative positions—as measured by percentile groups—in their respective schooling distributions. I use the General Social Surveys 1972-2014 to study trends among cohorts born from 1915 through 1984. My empirical analyses reveal widespread equalization among Blacks and Whites in upward mobility out of the bottom of the schooling distribution, but widespread persistence against Blacks in downward mobility out of the top of the schooling distribution. Findings thus conform to a pattern of incomplete bottom-up convergence in educational mobility and speak to a persistent significance of race among well-educated families. I discuss how my results align with results from studies on the black-white test score gap and on black-white differences in intergenerational income mobility.​
