Summer is the time many families hit the road - heading to the beach and elsewhere.
But many vacation destinations like Rehoboth Beach weren’t always a welcome place for African Americans. And simply traveling on the open road during the segregation era wasn’t very safe for them.

Megan Pauly examines the book and its First State connections in History Matter, produced in collaboration with the Delaware Historical Society.
