Jon Voight and Ving Rhames star in this powerful dramatization of events preceding the obliteration of a black Florida community by a mob in 1923. A white woman's falsified story of being molested by a black man triggers a storm of violence from a nearby impoverished white community. The siege on Rosewood resulted in many deaths, buildings razed to the ground, and surviving residents fleeing in terror. Esther Rolle, Don Cheadle, Elise Neal, Michael Rooker. Directed by John Singleton.
