Historic Marker Dedication

Author E.R. Bills talks about his research during a historic marker dedication ceremony on Saturday, Jan. 16, 2016, at Slocum High School in Slocum, Texas. Bills wrote "The 1910 Slocum Massacre: A Genocide in East Texas," detailing the killings of unknown numbers of black residents by their white neighbors, and was instrumental in helping the family secure a historic marker from the state.
