Calling Our Culture: The Destruction of Rosewood
Calling Our Culture is a three-part series where we will explore the complexities of different cultures within our community through the humanities. In this event, we will explore a critical analysis of Rosewood, a predominantly black community destroyed in 1923 during a racially motivated attack, and other majority-black cities in Florida within the context of group economics and how that tradition among African Americans was destroyed. Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
