What I’m Reading: Race, Riots, and Roller Coasters – 6 in a series – “…urban dwellers contested these spaces.“

September 26th, 2019

“Moreover, the struggle for desegregated public accommodations was never fully distinct from the struggle for equal access to housing and employment. A local swimming pool or playground was an extension of a neighborhood, and as the racial composition of neighborhoods changed, urban dwellers contested these spaces.“

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