Two Weeks Every Summer: Fresh Air Children and the Problem of Race in America, by Tobin Miller Shearer, Assoc. Professor of History and Director of African-American Studies at the Univ. of Montana. Shearer shows how the actions of rural and suburban residents who hosted children from the city for two-week summer vacations, perpetuated racial inequity rather than overturned it. He brings to the forefront of his history of the Fresh Air program the voices of the children themselves through letters they wrote, pictures they took, and their testimonials.
