The Maryland Board of Public Works will spend more than $5.2 million on turning a historically Black beach on the Chesapeake Bay into a public city park. The money will go towards preserving the legacy of a beach used by the Black community during a time of segregation. The beach was once owned by the Carr Family and is close to Carr’s Beach and Sparrow’s Beach, which are popular resorts on the Chesapeake Bay.
