When Sharon Langley was born in the early 1960s, many amusement parks were segregated, and African-American families were not allowed entry. This interesting tale reveals how in the summer of 1963, due to demonstrations and public protests, the Gwynn Oak Amusement Park in Maryland became desegregated and opened to all for the first time. Co-author Sharon Langley was the first African-American child to ride the carousel. This was on the same day of Martin Luther King Jr.'s March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Langley's ride to remember demonstrated the possibilities of King's dream.Sujet(s): 20th century | African American girls | African Americans | Amusement parks | Baltimore | Biography | Civil rights | Civil rights movements | History | Juvenile literature | Langley, Sharon | Maryland | Merry-go-round | WoodlawnÉditeur original: [United States], Dreamscape Media, LLC, Made available through hooplaLangue(s): EnglishISBN: 9781690514343, 1690514345
