A: Do you know?

This June 2007 photo shows a group of African-Americans celebrating a family reunion in Ocean City, Maryland. While the significance of such an event may seem trivial, it certainly wouldn’t to them. Such a gathering shows what tremendous strides have been made there the past 40 years. Until the 1960’s blacks were prohibited from the beach or boardwalk, except for 3 days after Labor Day, called “Colored Excursion Days.”

Taking this photograph from behind the group shot they posed for, allowed me the chance to present the Boardwalk and Ocean City marquee as the prominent feature. Their actual identities less important for the image, but their race and presence makes a vivid social statement.
