During the days of segregation in Virginia, African Americans were not allowed to use the city-owned pool in Alexandria. Some ended up drowning while swimming in the Potomac River. Now the city of Alexandria is dedicating a new pool to their memory. The parks department says at least nine children from Alexandria drowned in the Potomac River, and each of them will be memorialized on a plaque at the city's newest pool. The dedication is scheduled for 4 p.m. Saturday at the Charles Houston Recreation Center.
