Historic Marker Dedication

Descendants of Slocum Massacre survivor Jack Holley and his sons, Marsh and Lusk, gather with members of the community and friends for a Texas State Historic Marker dedication ceremony on Saturday, Jan. 16, 2016, at Slocum High School in Slocum, Texas. After more than 20 years of work by the family, the marker memorializing the July 29, 1910, killings of unknown numbers of black residents by angry white neighbors was finally erected and unveiled.
