Rosewood

Rosewood has been nominated for the best political film in the categories of Expose and Human Rights for 1997. Directed by John Singleton (of Boyz N the Hood fame), the film portrays the massacre of 50-60 Blacks in a Florida town just after World War I, an event that only recently came to light. In 1993, the Florida legislature voted reparations to the survivors and their heirs. MH
