Glen Echo Park Carousel 100th Anniversary Virtual Lectures: Carousel Civil Rights Story

February 24 @ 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Free

Learn about the Civil Rights history of the Glen Echo Park carousel with Ilana Trachtman, producer of the upcoming documentary “There Ain’t No Back to a Merry-Go-Round,” which tells the story of the 1960 protests that resulted in the integration of the privately-owned Glen Echo Amusement Park in 1961. Our Carousel 100th Anniversary lecture series is produced in collaboration with Montgomery History. Each lecture will last from 30-40 minutes, with a Q&A session at the end. The lectures will be presented on Zoom and registration will be required. The recorded lectures will also be available on YouTube.
