SORT BY Relevancy
The Rosewood massacre was a racially motivated attack on African Americans and their neighborhood committed by a white mob in Florida during January 1–7, 1923. At least six African Americans and two whites were reported as killed in the ensuing violence but the general belief of the people who were there is that it was many more. The town of Rosewood, a majority-black community, was abandoned and destroyed in what contemporary news reports characterized as a race riot (with the implication blacks had broken out in violence), but the fact tell a completely different story.

Rosewood, Florida, is a small, peaceful town with an almost entirely African-American population of middle-class homeowners, until New Year's Day 1923, when a lynch mob from a neighboring white community storms the town. Among the carnage, music teacher Sylvester (Don Cheadle) and mysterious stranger Mann (Ving Rhames) stand tall against the invaders, while white grocer John (Jon Voight) attempts to save the town's women and children. This 1997 film is based on a true story and sheds light on an often forgotten part of American history.

Today on "It's My House" we discuss various "so-called" (race riots) or (race wars).
Events such as the Tulsa Race Riots....aka.....Black Wall Street, Memphis Race Riots, the Red Summer, and even the 1968 Race Riots have ALL been MISLABLED ! These events where NOT "race riots" they were LAND GRABS.
No one was ever criminally prosecuted as a result of these events; so we shall take a look as to why legal proceedings never happened.
After we gather the facts then we shall organize a proactive plan for prevention so events like these will not happen in the future.

The shortest month of the year should't limit the expansive contributions of Black people throughout the United States and the Americas. We'll salute the sacrifices, dreams, hopes and opportunities of African Americans from Phyllis Wheatley to Dr. Ralph David Abernathy to Rev. Karla Cooper who represent the best of our race.
Black History IS American History. And today's show pays tribute to why it should matter to ALL people throughout the land.
Today, the official celebration of Black History Month comes to an end. Tune in tonight as the host of Long Story Short, Dr. William Hardy, reflects on the origin of Black History Month, highlights some of the popular topics/shows, explores current events within the Black experience and discusses what is ahead.
Long Story Short is a weekly show focusing on African American history, current issues in the black community and the future of people of African descent around the world. For the month of February, Dr. Hardy is dedicating the show to Black History Month where he will share some untold, as well as some familiar stories of the history and souls of Black folks. Tune in as Dr. Hardy makes the long, rich stories of the African Diaspora short, sweet and unforgettable.
February marks Black History Month, and in celebration, World Footprints returns to Missouri; a state that has made a unique contribution to America’s history. Ian and Tonya will speak to Father Moses Berry, founder of the Ozarks African American Heritage Museum in Ash Grove. Then, Angela da Silva of Lindenwood University will join them to talk about a few Missourians who rose from slavery to national prominence. Finally, we journey to Independence, Missouri to explore some of the history and places were African American contributions have not been forgotten.
THE HEROES OF BLACK HISTORY
If you really want to know what scares America, don't fool yourself into thinking it's the Black man with a gun--this nation put them there. The scariest Black Man or Black Woman is the one with knowledge and a plan.
