Back in the 1950’s, beaches were segregated and ‘Chicken Bone Beach’ was the only section in Atlantic City where Blacks could sit and enjoy the sun.
Chicken Bone Beach got its name from the numerous visitors that spent the day at the beach with chicken dinners packed away in their picnic baskets. The beach drew famous faces like Sammy Davis Jr., Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, the Club Harlem showgirls, Jackie Robinson, Lena Horne and Sugar Ray Robinson.
