The temperature in Winston-Salem, N.C., crested at 90 degrees on July 4 — the same day Jasmine Edwards and her son, both African Americans, sought the cool waters of the pool in their private community.
Adam Bloom was there, too, confident in his charge of helping enforce neighborhood rules as the ‘pool chair’ of the Glenridge Homeowners Association. He asked Edwards to show identification to prove she belonged. Then he called the police.
And the four of them — two officers, Edwards and Bloom — stood outside the pool gate, unsure how the latest incident of police response to public blackness would unfold.
