The Rosewood Massacre, 1923 - a predominantly black town was wiped out and many killed by a white mob, because of false allegations made by a white woman. Remaining residents abandoned the town. The initial report of the Rosewood incident presented less than a month after the massacre claimed there was insufficient evidence for prosecution. Thus no one was charged with any of the Rosewood murders.

At least six blacks and two whites were killed, and the town of Rosewood was abandoned and destroyed in what contemporary news reports characterized as a race riot.
