Description

On the morning of July 16, 1949, a young Lake County farm wife accused four young black men of rape. The case of “The Groveland Four” played out over several years, and led to a race riot, torture, multiple murders, two trials, a Supreme Court reversal and the assassination of a Florida civil rights leader.

Though widely reported at the time by the national and international press, the case has been largely forgotten... even though it helped lay a foundation for the end of Jim Crow segregation and the start of the Civil Rights Movement.
