The Massacre in Ocoee will be commemorated on November 2, 2020
The Rev. Dr. Harry Coverston, assisting priest at St. RIchard's, has been involved with the Alliance for Truth and Justice for many years. https://www.ocoeemassacre.com/
Below, please find an article from the Orlando Sentinel that describes the Occoe Masscre and the work that has been and is being done around remembering the dangerous truth of our past here in Central Florida. 
 
Harry says: "This is the unforeseen work my life has led me to. The Massacre in Ocoee will be commemorated on November 2, 2020 with the unveiling of a historic marker in the Ocoee Civic Center. I will be leading an interfaith service as a part of that weeklong commemoration on Friday, November 6 in Ocoee. July Perry’s lynching has been memorialized with a historical marker in downtown Orlando. And the Orange County Regional History Center exhibit, Yesterday, this was home has just opened as well.

 

Our Alliance for Truth and Justice is finally seeing some of our hard work pay off. But do not kid yourself. This struggle is far from over, as this article well reveals."
