Miami City Commissioners, in a sweeping four-fifths majority vote, established a contract for museum consultant services for the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park Museum with Lord Cultural Resources. The Civil Rights museum on Virginia Key Beach will not only embrace the creation of the county's only "colored people" beach back in 1945, but also would honor the history and the dedication of all workers of color who helped build Miami dating to some 50 years earlier.
