The Struggle for the Civil Right to Public Space in Miami
Virginia Key Beach can claim a significant place in the national Civil Rights Movement. This account underscores the importance of local advocacy and grassroots activism in the struggle for civil rights in the years before 1964 and links it to the expanding notion of civil rights to public space that has emerged more recently. By examining the long struggle for Virginia Key Beach, we can better appreciate how the role of cultural memory within the African American community intersects with the challenges for funding equity and bureaucratic processes to deepen consciousness of place beyond the fluid demands of capitalism.
