What I’m Reading: Race, Riots, and Roller Coasters – 12 in a series – “…many used such memories to fuel their passion for racial justice.”

October 4th, 2019

“Recreational segregation was particularly cruel to children, who would harbor the memories of exclusion throughout their lives. As these children grew up, many used such memories to fuel their passion for racial justice.

The integrated train and streetcar became a central image of a loosening of segregation’s ties in the urban North. The segregated amusement park and swimming pool, in contrast, reflected segregation’s persistence.”
