    From Random House:
    "Juke joint (or jook joint) is the vernacular term for an informal establishment featuring blues music, dancing, and alcoholic drinks, primarily operated by African American people in the southeastern United States. The term "juke" is believed to derive from the Gullah word joog, meaning rowdy or disorderly."

    If you were to pass through Belle Glade this afternoon you would see a scene almost exactly like this still.

    I bet their employer owned the juke joint, too.
