VoxPopuli Saturday interviewed Manny "DJ Man" McDuffie and Tracy "Nubian" Lawson of the Buffalo Soliders Motorcycle Clubs in Orlando and Tampa, respectively, about why they rode out with their clubs in honor of the people who were killed during the #OcoeeMassacre 101 years ago and why it's important to acknowledge the date each year. It's estimated that about 30 to 35 African-Americans died on Nov. 2, 1920, the day of the U.S. presidential election, when a white mob attacked the Black residents to prevent them from voting. Most African American-owned buildings and houses in northern Ocoee were burned to the ground and the violence continued in the southern part of the city. #OcoeeRemembers #neveragain
