The beach was situated near the Ocean Park neighborhood and Phillips Chapel Christian Methodist Episcopal (CME) Church, founded in 1905 as the first black church in Santa Monica, which also anchored an early African American settlement around 4th and Bay Streets. During the high season, hundreds of African Americans from throughout Southern California socialized, enjoyed the ocean breezes and swam at the Inkwell because they experienced less racial harassment there than at other area beaches.
