You had your token whites in the clubs, too, but in the early days before people like Donna Summer it was this group of people that were pretty much underground. I think people were dancing to forget their problems and the injustices on the outside."

More than 75 percent of the route is on existing utility right-of-way." The mile markers for the existing Line 81 are clearly visible along Highway 2.
