Day Camp Kids Told Minorities Not Allowed in Phila., PA Pool
After paying the $1900.00 membership fee required by the Valley Swim Club in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a private club that advertised 'open membership', the children of the Creative Steps Day Camp, mostly minority children, arrived at the club and got in the pool.
Pool attendants for the club approached the children in the pool, informing the children that minorities were not allowed in the pool, instructing them to leave immediately.
