Ocoee Massacre

Last week, our community remembered the Ocoee Massacre of 1920. The Ocoee Massacre has been described as the single bloodiest day in modern American political history. The violence perpetrated on black residents in Ocoee was an effort to suppress their votes and preserve white supremacy. We must honor the victims of this horrible event by remembering them not just at community events but by protecting voters from suppression and intimidation in every election and at every polling place.
