Ain’t No Back To A Merry-Go-Round: Review

Ain’t No Back To A Merry-Go-Round: Review. By Richard Schertzer.

In the early 1960s, there was a park called Glen Echo and it was a nice respite from the daily activities of life. It’s a warm and jovial spot for people to just kick back and relax. However, that may not be the case for all people. 

The film takes place in the 1960s, during the reign of Jim Crow that segregated races and kept Black Americans in the back seat–no pun intended–in society. It discusses the racial disparity between people and their beliefs towards others. 



The film is a wonderful anatomy of the history of racial problems in the mid-20th Century. It might get lost within other Civil Rights movies and documentaries but it still manages to come out on top with a stark and earnest message of equality. 

It works as a great history lesson for children and adults not familiar with the Glen Echo segregation incident. It highlights such fervor and passion in the black communities to end segregation with the help of some of the white people in their journey.

This film proves to be an endearing foray into the racial disparities of the 1960s and gives you a beautiful, yet dark, glimpse into what that time was like for people of color. 

All in all the film proves to be a potent and endearing piece of work for those involved. It is certainly a must-watch.
