Hate Sits in Places

Folk Knowledge and the Power of Place in Rosewood, Florida

(p.218) 10 Hate Sits in Places
Excavating Memory

Edward González-Tennant

University Press of Florida

This chapter explores the intersection of folk knowledge, landscape, and memory as they relate to the destruction of Rosewood, Florida, in early 1923—a town once home to a prosperous African American community. In González-Tennant’s analysis of folklore related to Rosewood's destruction, he traces the different meanings that have become attached to the town's former location. This research, which combines approaches from memory studies and landscape archaeology, focuses on acts of remembering and forgetting in memory work. González-Tennant also explores the types of analyses that are possible when archaeologists consider landscapes as non-thinking actants capable of affecting human emotion and action. These considerations support a broader conceptualization of the deep entanglements of present social inequality and past racial violence.
