    The Real Rosewood Story with Lizzie Robinson Jenkins

    in History

    The Real Rosewood Foundation, Inc.


    The Real Rosewood Foundation was created in 2002 to develop a timeline, expand the search, find lost survivors, and locate descendants – black and white, inviting cultural participation to preserve an important history.


    Though it has been ninety-two years since the massacre, the descendants are still in touch with their beginning. Each year in July they celebrate family reunions. They are not angry and do not dwell on the past destruction of their hometown. Choosing to attain higher learning, many have gone on to become educators, doctors, lawyers, engineers, superintendent of schools, and skilled workers. They never lost the work ethics and values instilled in them by their ancestors. A most recent development regarding Rosewood is the interest of white Rosewood descendants in helping protect the history.


    This foundation is dedicated to building the Rosewood Black History Preservation and Research Center in memory of the Rosewood survivors and descendants at Mahulda's Archer, Florida homestead. Additionally, the foundation sponsors a scholarship in honor of Mahulda Gussie Brown Carrier, the third Rosewood schoolteacher employed in Levy County. Carrier is the first and only black female principal employed in Levy County and is believed the second black female principal hired in the state of Florida . The foundation is working to produce a documentary recapping real truths by historian Lizzie Jenkins, founder and president of The Real Rosewood Foundation, who is writing her life story which includes how she unlocked the secrets of Rosewood through consistent research. Moreover, the foundation is producing two songs, "Rosewood Florida" and "Rosewood, No More".

    The Real Rosewood Story with Historical Orator Lizzie Robinson Jenkins

    in Sports

    FROM THE DESK OF FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT, LIZZIE ROBINSON JENKINS:


    Long before The Real Rosewood Foundation was created, my mother strongly suggested researching the real truths of the Rosewood occurrence. The two of us shared the dark secrets of the Rosewood story over the years starting in 1943, when I was only five. For me, the most significant part of the Rosewood story is centered on its schoolteacher, Mom’s sister, my favorite aunt and mentor, Mahulda Gussie Brown Carrier.


    The memory of Rosewood is constantly on my mind. I have not been able to lay the burden of its history down. To my mother, Theresa Brown Robinson, Rosewood was a “song” etched in her heart. She promised my Aunt Mahulda that she would keep her secrets safely hidden, but the thought of what happened to her dear sister in Rosewood made the vow too tremendous a task to keep silent during the making of the movie, ROSEWOOD. As the title of the old Negro Spiritual suggests, “I Said I Wasn’t Gonna Tell Nobody but I Couldn't Keep It to Myself,” my mother was compelled to share her sister’s story, reliving the horrifying and hostile events she witnessed in 1923, at age 21. Mom contributed a great deal of information to the moviemakers; however, they used her information and did not properly give credit.


    She was offended after watching the Rosewood movie and charged me with completing her Rosewood research, firmly stating, "Mommy didn't raise no fools. You finish my research and tell our own Rosewood story. I have given you enough oral family history to make a documentary and you must do just that!"

    Grief Diaries Radio featuring Grammy winner Richard Leigh

    in Health

    Born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Virginia, Richard Leigh was born into a home filled with domestic violence that ultimately claimed the life of both parents.  Richard became an orphan at the tender age of four.


    Going from family to family, he sought comfort in the form of music and songwriting.  By the time he was ten, he was performing at church and school functions.  By the time he was a teen, he was performing in music venues.  Despite his humble beginnings, Richard went on to write songs for the greatest country music artists in history, including Ray Charles, George Jones, Alabama, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Dixie Chicks, and more.  Award trophies include a Grammy, CMA Award, and Richard is one of only ten songwriters in history to ever receive the Song of the Century award.  Arguably his most famous song, Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue, reached #1 on both the Pop and Country charts, earning Richard his first Grammy. He was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1994.  To date, Richard’s music has sold 50 million records and has made fourteen trips into the top ten, including eight #1 hits.
