The Styx of Palm beach

It was an honor to be a part of the CBS12 News Black History Month special report on The Styx of Palm Beach.

There’s a lot of history and controversy on what happened on that island, which is now home to the rich and famous and a former president.

My great great grandfather was commissioned by President Harding to bring railroad magnate Henry Flagler to South Florida.

I talked about that, as well as the Sunset Lounge, as it was the place to be along the “chitlin circuit” for black entertainers.

So please watch the special. It airs Monday, February 22, at 7:30 p.m. on CBS12 News.  There will be some encore presenations on CW 34 in March.

Watch it here.
