What I’m Reading: Race, Riots, and Roller Coasters – 18 in a series – “…a pool was threatening because blacks themselves embodied the possibility of disorder…”

October 14th, 2019

A black presence at a beach or a pool was threatening because blacks themselves embodied the possibility of disorder, even when they were not responsible for the violence that followed.”
