  1. It’s ironic this should run in February during Black History Month. In the Fifties and Sixties, the swimming pool at Glen Echo was segregated, so my family boycotted the Park.


  2. Yes, the owners of the park had an awful practice. Still, they are no longer associated with the park so perhaps you can look at the park with fresh eyes. The park is welcoming to everyone, and people of many backgrounds converge there to celebrate life. Perhaps you can do so yourself before long. Whatever its history, it is now the kind of place the Civil Rights movement worked to create.
