The Killing of ASJ Allen

“The Rev. A.S.J. Allen was a revered Methodist minister in Alachua County who was murdered by a powerful plantation owner in 1904. His death sparked a social movement for justice as black churches, secret societies, and civic organizations mobilized to demand that Rev. Allen’s death be treated seriously by the state. AAHP (Alachua County African-American History Project) has been working with Alonzo Felder, Rev. Allen’s grandson, on researching the case. This film examines the events surrounding the murder. It was produced by Alonzo’s son, Seth Felder.”
