What I’m Reading: Race, Riots, and Roller Coasters – 26 in a series – “The study of race relations came of age during World War II.”

October 24th, 2019

“The study of race relations came of age during World War II. Racial conflict in the military, the 1943 Detroit riot, and continuous skirmishes on the home front sharpened the attention of social scientists and government officials. Some, such as Robert C. Weaver, a black economist and New Deal official, saw the interracial committees in the urban North as playing a vital role in transforming the nation’s attitudes toward racial segregation.”
