Sun, Surf and Soul: Sea Breeze Beach and San Diego Surfers


July 19th, 2017 ~ It's summertime, and the living is easy on American Routes, where we've got cool tunes from Miles Davis, Ray Charles, Martha and the Vandellas, and the Beach Boys to help you beat that summer heat. We'll hear memories of Sea Breeze, NC, a historically Black resort community that was an early site of integration in the Jim Crow South... And visit with some surfers at Mission Beach, San Diego.
