Ocoee is a city in Orange County, Florida, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 35,579. It is part of the Orlando–Kissimmee Metropolitan Statistical Area.
On November 2, 1920, after two black men (July Perry and Moses Norman) attempted to vote and encouraged other blacks to vote, the entire black population of the town was violently attacked. On the night of the massacre, white World War I veterans from throughout Orange County participated. At least 24 black homes were burned. All the institutions making up the black community were destroyed. Before the massacre, Ocoee's black population numbered approximately five hundred; after the massacre, however, the black population was virtually eliminated. For more than 40 years, Ocoee remained an all-white town. Since then, Ocoee has become much more diverse with a strong Hispanic and African-American population but still remains a predominantly white city.
The median income for a household in the city was $53,225, and the median income for a family was $56,865.
