Title

Prince Edward Lake, VA

Description

Stan Shaw, unidentified child and Dr. Rachel Weddington at Prince Edward Lake. Shaw was Chairman of the Student Help Project; Weddington was a Queens College education professor who mentored the student volunteers.

Then known as Prince Edward State Park for Negroes, the park was established as a "separate but equal" facility in 1950 in the wake of a lawsuit by African American Maceo C. Martin. The park was operated independently from the nearby Goodwin Lake Recreation Area until passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
