    The Real Rosewood Story By Lizzie Robinson Jenkins

    in Sports

    FOUNDING OF ROSEWOOD


    Rosewood was established around 1870 in Levy County, Florida on a road leading to Cedar Key and the Gulf of Mexico. It is believed to have taken its name from the abundant red cedar trees that grew in the area. Rosewood prospered as the Florida Railroad established a small depot to handle the transport of cedar wood to the pencil factory in Cedar Key and the transportation of timber, turpentine rosin, citrus, vegetables, and cotton. In 1890, the cedar depleted and many of the white families moved to Sumner, three miles west of Rosewood, and worked at the newfound saw mill established by Cummer & Sons. By 1900, Rosewood had a majority of black citizens.


    ROSEWOOD MASSACRE


    On the morning of January 1, 1923, Fannie Coleman Taylor, a white woman and homemaker of Sumner Florida, claimed a black man assaulted her. Although she was not seriously injured and was able to describe what happened, she allegedly remained unconscious for several hours due to the shock of the incident. No one disputed her account and no questions were asked. It was assumed she was reporting the incident accurately.


    POSSE SUMMONED


    James Taylor, a foreman at Cummer & Sons saw mill and Fannie Taylor's husband, assembled a vicious mob and ordered tracking dogs. The local white community became enraged at the alleged abuse of a white woman by a black man; it was an unpardonable sin for any black man to gaze upon a white woman and he most certainly could not touch one.


    ASSISTANCE SOUGHT


    James Taylor requested help from Levy County and neighboring Alachua County, where a staged Ku Klux Klan celebration was ending on the courthouse square in downtown Gainesville, Florida. A large number of KKK members had been rallying and marching in opposition of justice for black people on December 31, 1922, leading up to the January 1, 1923 Rosewood massacre.

    Black History Month: Rosewood Massacre of 1923

    in Lifestyle

    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.


    Lizzie Polly Robinson Brown Jenkins, our guest on this broadcast was born October 25, 1938, in Archer, Florida and earned a BS Degree in Education from Florida Memorial University and a Master’s from Nova University. She taught in the Alachua County Public School System for thirty-three years.  Jenkins has amassed more than twenty years of Rosewood research authenticating, documenting, and positioning a legacy for a new generation. "For unless we remember, neither we, nor future generations will understand" states Jenkins.

    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!"


     

  • Do U Have A Greenwood/Rosewood Plan ?

    in Real Estate

    Today on "It's My House" we shall ask the question: "Do You Have A Greenwood/Rosewood Plan ?" 


    For those of you who do not know Greenwood was a "neighborhood" located in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This neighborhood is known by it's more popular name, which is Black Wall Street.  In 1921 this neighborhood was destroyed via urban rioting. Parts of the neighborhood was rebuilt, however this neighborhood never returned 100% to it's formal glory. 


    Rosewood was a township located on the west of Florida. In 1923 this township was destroyed via rioting as well, however now it is a ghost town.


    We shall take a look both of these events and what we need to do today so we are not victims.
