What I’m Reading: Race, Riots, and Roller Coasters – 23 in a series – “…forced bathers to wear badges authorizing them to use either the black or white areas on the beach.”

Particularly chilling was a 1938 ordinance passed in Long Branch, New Jersey, that forced bathers to wear badges authorizing them to use either the black or white areas on the beach.”
