    Chicken Bone Beach

    African-Americans who wished to enjoy the Atlantic City beach during the period from 1900 through the early 1950's were socially restricted to the Missouri Avenue area. As thousands of vacationing Black families flocked to the shore with their chicken-laden picnic hampers, the strip became affectionately nicknamed "Chicken Bone Beach". A block party atmosphere was enhanced by the visits of major Black entertainers, such as Sammy Davis Jr., "Moms" Mabley, and the Club Harlem showgirls. The first Black captain of the lifeguards, Captain William "Rube" Albouy headed a patrol of 12 lifeguards who ensured the safety of as many as 5,000 swimmers. Chicken Bone Beach survives as a symbol of family unity and African-American brotherhood.
