C. D. B. King, President of the Republic of Liberia, visited Philadelphia in May, 1921. King was honored at a luncheon hosted at the Hotel Dale, one of very few African American owned and operated hotels in Philadelphia. King chose to stay at the Hotel Dale for the duration of his visit, instead of the Bellevue-Stratford, which segregated African Americans, or did not allow them to stay in the hotel.
