History: Before desegregation, African American musicians who performed on Miami Beach were unable to sleep or dine in the hotels in which they performed. Instead, they went “over town” to the dozens of juke joints of Overtown and performed in front of integrated audiences into the wee hours. This is our tribute to them.
