Remembering Rosewood 
*All ages* In 1923, a white mob stormed the small, prosperous African American community of Rosewood, near Florida’s Gulf Coast. Fueled by racial resentment, the mob terrorized the black residents, before burning the town to the ground. Hear the story of Rosewood, FL through the oral history of Rosewood survivor Mahulda Gussie Brown Carrier, as told to by her niece, Lizzie PRB Jenkins, founder and president of The Real Rosewood Foundation.
