What I’m Reading: Race, Riots, and Roller Coasters – 30 in a series – “…New York State, for example, created the State Commission Against Discrimination (SCAD) in 1945…”

October 31st, 2019

“As communities faced the growing racial conflict of the war years, racial liberals shaped their responses to racial bias and black demands for redress. New York State, for example, created the State Commission Against Discrimination (SCAD) in 1945 to investigate cases of racial discrimination. At the local level cities created interracial commissions to mediate disputes and prevent racial violence. The first such commission emerged from the Chicago Race Riot in 1919, when the mayor appointed prominent scholars and politicians to investigate the causes of the riot.”
