What I’m Reading: Race, Riots, and Roller Coasters – 10 in a series – “… raising the specter of interracial romance.”

October 2nd, 2019

“Given liberal support for integration by the 1940s, the duration and strength of white opposition to desegregation are notable. Among public accommodations this opposition was most pronounced in amusement parks, swimming pools, and skating rinks. All of these spaces invited young men and women to mix, raising the specter of interracial romance.”
