My kids have begged me to ride this carousel, and I had no idea it had such an interesting history in the fight against segregation.

This book is about the desegregation of an amusement park and the people that led the cause. The book is narrated by the parents of Sharon Langley(the author), telling her about the famous ride she took on the carousel after the park had desegregated. This is a wonderfully illustrated and written book on a lesser known moment in civil rights history. Appropriate for early elementary.

In the summer of 1963, non-violent protests were held at the Gywnn Oak Amusement Park in Baltimore, Maryland to condemn the park’s segregation policy. On August 28, 1963, the park was desegregated and eleven-month-old Sharon Langley was the first African American child to ride the park’s merry-go-around.
Read the recently published picture book and middle grade book on this topic, then learn more by watching the documentary:
A RIDE TO REMEMBER: A CIVIL RIGHTS STORY by Sharon Langley and Amy Nathan tells the story of the Gywnn Oak Amusement Park protests and young Sharon Langley’s experience riding the merry-go-round. This beautifully illustrated picture book concludes with historical information and a timeline.
Amy Nathan also wrote the middle and high school nonfiction text ROUND AND ROUND TOGETHER: TAKING A MERRY-GO-ROUND INTO THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT.
ALL THE KING’S HORSES: THE STORY OF GWYNN OAK AMUSEMENT PARK is a video documentary chronicling the efforts to desegregate the park. Told through eyewitness accounts and personal narrative, the video presents all sides of the issue.
