Radio Chronicles - February 25, 2005

Rosewood Reborn recounts the Rosewood Florida massacre of 1923, when an alleged attack on a white woman became the excuse for six days of racial rioting, the destruction of this African American community, and the massacre of an unknown number of residents.

Rosewood's fate was an open secret for six decades. The terrorized survivors were silent, and the public quickly forgot. But in 1992 two survivors of the massacre filed a claim against the state of Florida, and in 1994 the legislature finally awarded survivors and descendants $2 million – the only known case of reparations to black Americans in U.S. history.
