On the twenty-second of March, 1998, Ms. Deborah Anderson's African-American History class
at Coral Gables Senior High School visited the home of Mrs. Sandra Maxwell, a descendent
of survivors of the Rosewood Massacre, which took place in the northern Florida town of
Rosewood over a period of a week, beginning the night of December 31st, 1922, and lasting
into the first days of 1923. The accompanying JavaŽ applet plays a streaming audio
file of the conversation that took place between Mrs. Maxwell and Ms. Anderson. The
subject of their talk covers everything from the killings themselves to the filming of the
movie Rosewood, to the involvement of the Ku Klux Klan in the massacre.
