100 years ago, a white mob completely destroyed the primarily Black town of Rosewood, Florida. The death toll is unknown and the story was erased from history for 70 years. No one was ever prosecuted for the crimes.
We cannot continue to allow the erasure of Black history. The Governor of FL is waging a war against the knowledge of Black history and of Black people. Banning books and restricting scholastic offerings related to Black studies and history. If he can, he will continue.
