Düss-Ruhr Book Club: Traveling Black by Mia Bay


This month, we will be reading 'Traveling Black- A Story of Race and Resistance’' by Mia Bay. 

“A comprehensive survey of the relationship between travel restrictions, racial segregation, and civil rights in America” (Publishers Weekly), From stagecoaches and trains to buses, cars, and planes, Traveling Black explores when, how, and why racial restrictions took shape and brilliantly portrays what it was like to live with them. Bay unearths troves of supporting evidence, rescuing forgotten stories of undaunted passengers who made it back home despite being insulted, stranded, re-routed, or ignored. All readers are welcome. RSVP here to receive the meeting information!
