Comments
A double memoir, "Integrating Delmar," by the white woman who (with her husband) rented to a black couple in 1957, and the black woman who (with her husband) moved into Delmar, tells of the mild resistance and interesting experiences both families had. When the black couple bought a house in Delmar the next year, more resistance surfaced but proved ephemeral.
