What I’m Reading: Race, Riots, and Roller Coasters – 5 in a series – “For most the goal was desegregation…”

September 25th, 2019

“Ordinary African American citizens challenged segregated recreation nationwide, swimming at whites-only beaches, boycotting segregated roller rinks, and picketing Jim Crow amusement parks. For most the goal was desegregation, obtaining the right to occupy recreational space, rather than integration, fully sharing facilities with white neighbors.“

From Race, Riots, and Roller Coasters: The Struggle over Segregated Recreation in America by Victoria W. Wolcott
