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.
