Rosewood Day – January 1, 2020 
Real Rosewood Foundation, Inc. hosted a candle lighting ceremony in Cedar Key, Florida on January 1st. The ceremony sought to honor the victims and survivors of the 1923 Rosewood massacre and to celebrate a signed Proclamation recognizing January 1st as “Rosewood Day,” recently written and signed by Congressman Ted Yoho and Representative Clovis Watson, Jr. As the Interim Executive Board Chair (now Executive Board Chair and Deputy Director) of the Real Rosewood Foundation, Inc., I had the great honor and privilege to coordinate the ceremony and fellowship with the spirits of Rosewood alongside Lizzie Robinson Jenkins, niece of Rosewood survivors.
