LOWNDES COUNTY ALABAMA
By 1960 the population had declined to about 15,000 residents and was about 80 percent-majority black. The rural county was referred to as “Bloody Lowndes”, the rusty buckle of Alabama’s Black Belt, because of the high rate of white violence against blacks to maintain segregation. In 1965, a century after the American Civil War and decades after whites had disenfranchised blacks via the 1901 state constitution, they maintained white supremacy by intimidation and violence, suppressing black voting.
