Arnett Turner "A.T." Goins, one of the last elderly survivors of the Rosewood, Florida massacre in 1923, has died at 87.
In 1923 the town of Rosewood which was a predominantly black community, was attacked by a mob and burned to the ground. Mr Goins relocated to St. Petersburg, Florida where he found work in the construction field.
In 1992, the Florida state legislature voted to make reparations to the survivors of the Rosewood massacre because at the time law officials did nothing to stop it.
He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Anna Maude; a sister, Vera Hamilton of Lacoochee; and nine grandchildren. A daughter, Dr. Annette T. Goins Shakir, 58, the founder and director of Rosewood Heritage Foundation, died last Dec. 29 in St. Petersburg.
