Newsboy at Euclid Beach

Euclid Beach, like many places of recreation in Cleveland before World War ll, discriminated against African-Americans. The park did not charge an entry fee; blacks were allowed to enter, go on rides, and enjoy most of the other amenities. However, park policy bared blacks from the dance hall, roller rink, and bathing areas.
