In commemoration of the 100-year anniversary of the Rosewood Massacre, the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum in Miami presented “An Elegy to Rosewood” in early 2023. The Hannibal Square Heritage Center is honored to be the first stop on its tour throughout the state.
This groundbreaking exhibition explores the family story of Lizzie Robinson Jenkins and the way in which it became intertwined with the struggle for public recognition of the region’s legacy of racism. Personal artifacts are shown alongside a work by painter and TRRF board member Pedro Jermaine. Because so much of the oral history has been passed down by women, the Frost Museum chose to commission four women artists based in Miami to create original works based on the history of Rosewood.
