Pastor A.R. Bernard discussed the Ocoee Election Day Massacre with Rev. Stephen Nunn, the descendant of Julius "July" Perry, a prominent black man lynched during the horrific event. The little-known incident occurred election night 1920 in the small town of Ocoee, Florida after blacks attempted to vote. In the end, countless blacks were killed as they fled the city, their land was stolen, and no whites were ever held accountable for their acts of terrorism. It remains the worst incident of election violence in American history.
