This chapter traces the origins and evolution of racial segregation on public transportation in Florida. Unlike private spaces, public spaces on common carriers would continuously engender racial conflict because of the necessity of shared use between the races. The fight against racially segregated transportation would force black political activists to mature and voice a counterpublic that responded to and included the black masses.
