Also directed by Singleton and based on historic events of the 1923 Rosewood massacre in Florida, this drama told the story of how a thriving Black town and its residents' lives were destroyed after a white woman falsely accused a Black man of raping her. Don Cheadle, Ving Rhames and Esther Rolle starred in the picture.
