A model T Ford was used to ferry white children to Broward County schools.  Black Students walked from Oakland Park to Dania to get to the Colored School in Fort Lauderdale. “There was a great deal of bussing for white students, but it was all walking for the Black children,“ Louis Benton recalled. “The white children would laugh and jeer at the Black children as they passed them on the roads walking to school“                              (Photo courtesy of the Old Dillard Museum)
