STORIES OF SISTRUNK
Much like Joseph’s coat of many colors, so is the beloved Sistrunk Boulevard, a unique corridor, once a blend of black doctors and dentists, grocery stores, record shops, restaurants and an assortment of black owned businesses from as early as the 1940’s. The historical Sistrunk thoroughfare, initially one lane headed west and one lane headed east, was and to date the heart and soul of the northwest Fort Lauderdale community, a masterfully stitched tapestry of black ownership, legacy and success.
