What I’m Reading: Race, Riots, and Roller Coasters – 31 in a series – “Thus they allowed violence, both potential and real, to dictate the pace of desegregation.”

November 1st, 2019

“Many liberals cautioned against too rapid change, fearing an increase in racial conflict that would undermine the cause of racial equality. Thus they allowed violence, both potential and real, to dictate the pace of desegregation. In contrast, many ordinary African Americans and some activists sought an immediate end to racial segregation.”
