"Remembering Paradise Park"

Friday, Feb. 10, 2 p.m.

Paradise Park, a place of delight and leisure for the African-American community, was the "colored only" counterpoint to Silver Springs during the painful era of Jim Crow.  Vickers and Graham detail the history of the park with vivid photographs, vintage advertisements and interviews with employees and patrons.        Light refreshments.
