Lizzie's Rosewood Race
In her debut literary work, Lizzie's Rosewood Race takes her readers on a journey of truth, liberation, and sincere forgiveness. When we think about running a race, it's normal to think about a starting point and a finish line. My finish line has no end. The human race---Black, White, Yellow, Brown and all other shades of people and cultures will continue to race for freedom, for equality, for dignity and respect. We are still running and will continue to run. Will you run with me?
Alachua County, Florida
Alachua County's African American ancestry contributed significantly to the area's history. Once enslaved pioneers Richard and Juliann Sams settled in Archer as early as 1839. They were former slaves of James M. Parchman, who journeyed through the wilderness from Parchman, Mississippi. They and others shaped the county's history through inventions, education, and work ethics based on spirituality. This book shows people working together, from the early 1800s rural farm life, when racial violence was routine, until African Americans broke the chains of injustice and started organizing and controlling civic affairs.
