No longer hidden from history, the story of Arthur Henry

A new historic marker in Orlando’s Parramore neighborhood details the 1925 lynching of Black resident Arthur Henry. The details of his murder came to light only a few years ago.

It’s part of an effort by the Alliance for Truth and Justice to shed light on the region’s racially charged past.

The unveiling of the plaque and memorial was at the Wells’Built museum in Parramore where dozens of people attended the dedication service for Arthur Henry including his family. He was a thirty-five-year-old Black man and veteran who moved to Orlando around 1920 to work in the citrus industry.
