The Legacy of Ocoee: A Panel

Join a panel of experts as we discuss both the event and the dark legacies it has left in Central Florida through today.

It has been 100 years since America’s largest instance of voting-day violence – the Ocoee Massacre. Join a panel of experts as we discuss both the event and the dark legacies it has left in Central Florida through today. Speakers include Florida state Sen. Randolph Bracy, state Rep. Geraldine Thompson, Dr. Paul Ortiz of the University of Florida’s history faculty, and community historian Francina Boykin. This panel discussion is moderated by the History Center’s chief curator, Pam Schwartz, and coincides with the special exhibition Yesterday, This Was Home: The Ocoee Massacre of 1920.
