The City of Fort Lauderdale memorialized the victim of a 1935 lynching with a street renaming Tuesday.
A section of Davie Boulevard between Interstate 95 and U.S 441 was renamed “Rubin Stacy Memorial Boulevard" during a ceremony.
Stacy was around 29 years old when he was lynched in Fort Lauderdale on July 19, 1935.
City officials said Stacy never received legal counsel or a trial after a white woman alleged that he had threatened her.
No one was ever charged in the lynching.
