Full circle: Celebrating Omar Robinson’s ‘Circle of Love’
- Published: July 14, 2016
About 100 current and former residents of Omar Circle gathered last Sunday at the Mills Park Hotel banquet room to honor, remember and celebrate the neighborhood in which many grew up and some still live. The event celebrated life in the “Circle of Love,” which was part of the development created by Omar Robinson in 1955 that was open to everyone, and especially to African-American families. Ultimately, the development included 58 homes on Omar Circle and parts of East Enon Road and West South College. Those who attended the reunion included, from left, Alton Brisbane of Annapolis, Md.; Glenda Brisbane of Los Angeles; and Larry Brown of Cary, N.C.
