The development of a nudist community began in 1990, under the late Al Spencer. Spencer created the Black’s Beach Bares Association, a group that worked with park rangers, lifeguards, and the beach-goers to ensure the protection of the beach. Spencer was known as the “mayor” of Black’s Beach. In 2000, Lloyd Johnson took over Spencer’s position.
As leader of the Black’s Beach Bares, Johnson started to publish newsletters to keep members of the group informed about what was happening on the beach. He organized events for the nudist community, ensured that the beach was kept clean and hoisted a flag, emblazoned with the silhouettes of a nude man and woman, to represent the Black’s Beach Bares. He also launched an informational website, blacksbeach.org
