What I’m Reading: Race, Riots, and Roller Coasters – 8 in a series – “…in a circular argument, segregation needed to be maintained to prevent violence.“

September 30th, 2019

“The state used this threat of violence to justify segregation. In the logic of judges and politicians, public space had to be orderly and safe in order to function. Violence resulting from desegregation efforts disrupted this order, and, in a circular argument, segregation needed to be maintained to prevent violence.“

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