Our legacy and the city of Charlottesville, in celebration of Black History Month, presented Remembering the Glory Days. The celebration featured pictures and historic exhibits of the city's parks that were attended by only African Americans.
“It was always nice because we could go swimming. You could always smell the southern bakery, which was always nice to smell. We could always run over to the Monticello Dairy and buy treats over there and just have fun in the park,” said Bill Byers, remembering his childhood.
The pictures displayed were donated by members of the community.
