In 1923, whites, angered by a white woman's allegations of assault by an African American man, and propelled by the KKK, burned this town and murdered at least 8, and probably many more, of this town's residents. Later, a grand jury found no reason to implicate anyone in the attacks.

Yep. I thought of this one because the film was made nearby, and I drove by many times during filming. I have never been to the site of the real Rosewood, though.
