The 12th — and final — episode of our first season, "Glow in the Park," presents a history of Druid Hill Park, the third oldest public urban park in the country.
Hear from Kalman "Buzzy" Hettleman and Mitzi Swan, local tennis players who made strides to desegregate the park's tennis courts; renowned artist Joyce Scott, who designed a monument to Pool No. 2, the long-closed "colored pool" at the park; and various Druid Hill community residents at the park's weekly Farmer's Market.
Season 1 has come to an end, but you can help us produce Season 2. Just click here to make a contribution to our fundraising campaign to hear more little-known stories about Baltimore's rich history.
