Rubin Stacy Memorial Blvd.

February 8, 2022 was an incredibly moving and historic day for the Broward County, the City of Ft. Lauderdale, and the citizens of our community and I am proud to have taken a part.

Rubin Stacy was a 29-year-old resident of Broward County. He was a husband, son, father, brother, uncle and a gainfully employed hard-working man living in a house in Fort Lauderdale on NW 2nd Street. He was Black and unfortunately, reprehensibly, he was lynched and shot multiple times by a white mob right here in Broward County just off of Davie Blvd. on July 19, 1935. He was not protected by the law, he was not given a fair trial, he certainly did not receive justice in our county.

Recently, Ken Cutler was awarded the “Community Leadership Award” at the 9th Annual Dinner & Auction “Every Sole Counts” for In Jacobs’s Shoes, and subsequently, Cutler Rader launched a back-to-school drive to collect much-needed supplies over the summer in both the Coconut Creek and Deerfield Beach offices.
