Kahrl on Black Beaches

KahrlOver at the Faculty Lounge, Al Brophy highlights Andrew Kahrl's new book, The Land Was Ours: African American Beaches from Jim Crow to the Sunbelt South. Brophy writes:

This is a really terrific study of segregated beaches in the South during Jim Crow and the transition to integration and the related loss of African American land along those beaches. It's a beautifully written and haunting story.  I highly recommend this book to property and land use professors.  I hope it gets a lot of attention in law schools as well as history departments.
