Ernest Withers, Overton Park Zoo. Memphis, TN 1950’s
Like all Memphis tourist attractions, the Memphis Zoo was segregated in the 50’s. One day each week was set aside for black patrons and on that day, white patrons were not allowed in the zoo. On this day, any white person who came to the zoo was turned away.
