Scores of African American beach resorts, amusement parks, and country clubs dotted the landscape of mid-20th century century Maryland.  By the early 1970s, most of them were gone. 


Award-winning historian Andrew W. Kahrl will tell the remarkable story of the black entrepreneurs and urban kingpins who invested in coastal real estate, and the pleasure-seekers who flocked to the Chesapeake shore, in the era of segregation, and look at what forces led to the demise of these places in the years after the fall of Jim Crow.
