Carter Park in Fort Lauderdale. Wright-Muir told CNW Network that a white woman—later identified as Lani Kempner, a former professor at Broward College— who was swimming in the lane between Wright Muir and her son, told her she couldn’t talk across her lane. Wright Muir said when she told Kempner that the lifeguard said there was no rule to support her request, and offered to switch lanes, Kempner refused and demanded that the park personnel call the police.
