TitlePhotographs - - 1961 - - Wade-In near restaurant at East Las OlasBoulevard and Almond Avenue.
Date1961
NotesMuch of the Fort Lauderdale police force was stationed at the beach on July 23, 1961 where one of the wade-ins occurred. This photo was taken at East Las Olas Boulevard and Almond Avenue; the policemen are identified on the photograph. Wade-in participants included 2) Eula Johnson (president of the local NAACP); 4) Mathew H. McCray; 5) Horace Judson; and 6) Joseph Jordan (in the wagon). The city eventually sued Mizell, Johnson, and the NAACP in the Broward County Circuit Court to stop the wade-ins. A year later, Broward Circuit Judge Ted Cabot ruled against the city, effectively desegregating the public beaches of Broward County.
