SATURDAY, February 2, 2019 - The Rosedale Beach Hotel and Resort

The DELAWARE PUBLIC ARCHIVES will be having a program, "The Rosedale Beach Hotel and Resort," on Saturday, February 2, 2019, at 10:30 am at the Delaware Public Archives, 121 MLK JR BLVD N, Dover, Delaware. The presenter will be Tamara Jubilee-Shaw. In the pre-integration era of the 20th century, there were very few places for people of color to go for entertainment and hotel accommodations. Because of this, Rosedale Beach was a destination point for many people along the East Coast. The resort featured a hotel, boardwalk, dance hall, picnic and beach area, campground and amusement park. Well-known artists such as Louis Armstrong, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, and Stevie Wonder performed at the resort. Presented by Tamara Jubilee-Shaw, this program will examine the history of this special Delaware resort.

All these women’s lives were upended in the split second when Booth killed President Lincoln. For them, the tragedy never ended. Presented by Kathryn Canavan, author of Lincoln’s Final Hours, this program will be a preview of her next publication about the forgotten women of the Lincoln assassination
