What I’m Reading: Race, Riots, and Roller Coasters – 3 in a series – “…denied African Americans their right to occupy the same spaces as whites.”

September 23rd, 2019

“One way to broaden our understanding of desegregation is by conceiving of it as part of a broader struggle for control of and access to urban space. 6 The segregation of public accommodations denied African Americans their right to occupy the same spaces as whites. They could not act as consumers on an equal basis, and they could not fully inhabit the cities and towns in which they lived.“
