A well-written, thorough documentation of the ten-year struggle to integrate Gwynn Oak Amusement Park in Baltimore, Maryland, examining the context through which that integration happened. The stories about the hatred and prejudice toward Black Americans are harrowing and depressing, especially because I know there are still people who hold such views, although many of them have learned to be a bit more quiet. The courage of these civil rights activists was amazing, and it gives perspective on many of the current civil rights battles we are fighting, particularly for the rights of LGBTQ individuals.
