Summary
  • "Examines the events and forces leading up to 1919 race riots in Chicago."--Provided by publisher
  • July, 1919. Five black youths went swimming in Lake Michigan, unintentionally floating close to the "white" beach. An angry white man began throwing stones at the boys, striking and killing one. Racial conflict on the beach erupted into days of urban violence that shook the city of Chicago to its foundations. Hartfield draws on contemporary accounts to trace the roots of the explosion that had been building for decades in race relations, politics, business, and clashes of culture. -- adapted from amazon.com
