(p.123) 5 Intersectional Violence in Rosewood and Beyond
The Rosewood Massacre

Edward González-Tennant

University Press of Florida

Chapter 5 returns to intersectionality and the ways it relates to the multidimensionality of violence in Rosewood and beyond. The 1923 Rosewood race riot is just one event among hundreds of race riots and thousands of lynchings that occurred in the United States during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. While the history of American lynchings and race riots remains hidden from most people, that is changing as communities find numerous ways to memorialize these uncomfortable histories. In this chapter González-Tennant examines the complex ways visible forms of violence interact with structural and symbolic forms through time. Charting these interactions between the late nineteenth century and today identifies the time immediately following World War I as a pivotal moment in intersectional violence and U.S. race relations. Postwar instability triggered unprecedented levels of racially charged collective violence and explains how specific locations like Rosewood provide important insights allowing us to better understand how changing forms of violence affect communities through time.
