Abstract:
Sea Breeze was a resort beach near Wilmington specifically for African American between the 1920s and 1970s. The area included restaurants, nighclubs, and hotels exclusively for black clientele and its decline was partially due to inlet projects, natural disasters, and desegregation. The article presents the history of this community and the current coastal development erasing what little remains of the community.
