Ocoee: Legacy of the Election Day Massacre
In the early 20th century, Ocoee was home to one of Florida's most prosperous African American communities. On Election Day 1920, Mose Norman and July Perry attempted to vote and the African American community was erased from Ocoee's history, until now. Through the voice of the grandson of the man that led the lynch mob, and the great-grandson of the man that was lynched, OCOEE: LEGACY OF THE ELECTION DAY MASSACRE exposes the events that ensued when two black men exercised their right to vote. Now, Ocoee must confront its past in an effort of reconciliation and healing.
