Board a boat and shuttle

Black History Moments

BHBoard-a-boatBoard a boat and shuttle — There was no road to the new segregated beach; Black citizens had to board a boat and shuttle from the mainland across the Intracoastal Waterway to the isolated and undeveloped barrier island south of the Port Everglades inlet which is now called the Von D. Mizell and Eula¬† Johnson State Park. Some traveled by doom buggy, a trip that could take hours. (Photo courtesy of the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society Gene Hyde Collection)
