Sinclair Park Project

The Sinclair Park Project is an interactive CD telling the story of a 1940's segregated housing area in Bremerton, WA. During WWII many African Americans were recruited to the Pacific Northwest to work in the civil defense industry. They came by the thousands for a new life but found the old habits of segregation still a part of their lives. But despite the segregation African Americans forged ahead and created a community to be remembered. FOR MORE INFO CLICK LINK BELOW
