On July 25, 1946, four young African AmericansóGeorge & Mae Murray Dorsey and Roger & Dorothy Malcomówere shot hundreds of times by 12 to 15 unmasked white men in broad daylight at the Moore's Ford bridge spanning the Apalachee River, 60 miles east of Atlanta, Georgia. These killings, for which no one was ever prosecuted, enraged President Harry Truman and led to historic changes, but were quickly forgotten in Oconee and Walton Counties where they occurred. No one was ever brought to justice for the crime.
Dorothy and George were brother and sister.
Dorothy was 7 months pregnant at the time.
