Stories of Northwest Orange County Florida

Assisted by Francina Boykin 

Perrine Slim penned stories of the area of Northwest Orange County, Florida, over a three year period from April 2009 through December 2011. His particular focus is the relationships and community of the greater Apopka area. He relates the living conditions, relations, jobs, and businesses of the people in the area from the times of the Timucua tribe through current day. 

Topics include slavery, turpentine production, citrus production, progress from horse and riverboat to automotive transportation, Jim Crow segregation laws and their effects, education over the centuries, and the effect of education on the lives of residents living 'below the TO&A Railroad tracks'. 

Slim includes local and international sports figures from the early days of segregated athletics through to modern baseball, football, and basketball programs that have grown and prospered in the Apopka area.

About the author:
Perrine Slim, Apopka nurtured, attended his first eight years of formal education at the Clarcona Colored School. He then attended Hungerford High School, a private school for people of color, in completion of his twelve years of education. 
Slim is a Korean War veteran of the U.S. Navy on the USS General Mann TAP112. He proudly served from 1951-1954 above the 38th Parallel. 

Work took Perrine Slim from Apopka, to New York, to Miami. His heart has always been in citrus production.
