The 1910 Slocum Massacre: An Act of Genocide in East Texas

The Slocum Massacre bookIn late July 1910, a shocking number of African Americans in Texas were slaughtered by white mobs in the Slocum area of Anderson County and the Percilla-Augusta region of neighboring Houston County. The number of dead surpassed the casualties of the Rosewood Massacre in Florida and rivaled those of the Tulsa Riots in Oklahoma, but the incident—one of the largest mass murders of blacks in American history—is now largely forgotten. Investigate the facts behind this harrowing act of genocide in E.R. Bills’s compelling inquiry into the Slocum Massacre.
