Region’s Vacations Remain Segregated
(Washington Post) — Spinning around on the Glen Echo carousel one recent Saturday was a lovely sight — blacks and whites together, laughing and talking, joking about their gray hair and how much has changed in the 50 years since they first met.
The scene was a stark contrast to the iconic image of that summer of 1960, when a white security guard yanked a black girl off a merry-go-round pony. A lot has changed in 50 years. But when it comes to the way we play, a lot hasn’t.
