Chapter 4 explains how black entrepreneurs used the creation and promotion of black-owned leisure venues to boycott segregation and protect their right to consume. Recognizing the need for economic growth and social autonomy, black ministers and entrepreneurs argued that the right to consume should be greater than the right to integration. In building modestly profitable and popular businesses and recreational spaces, the region’s black merchant class succeeded in helping make separate more equal, even though they lost the larger fight over integrated leisure.
