Event time is displayed in your time zone.

Event Description 

The history of public parks in the South is closely linked to issues of racial segregation and exclusion from scenic places. In the 20th century, the state park movement sought to remediate this, but, under Jim Crow restrictions, access was often denied to Black residents, and newly created segregated parks were substandard compared to “white-only” spaces.
