100 years after Fred Rouse was lynched in Fort Worth, these events promote healing

One hundred roses were carried through the stockyards Monday to mark 100 years after the racial violence that killed Fred Rouse. “This is the first time in history when Mr. Fred Rouse is remembered here in the Stockyards that is imbued with our identities as Fort Worthians, and today as Fort Worthians we imbue the memory of Mr. Fred Rouse so that he will never be forgotten,” said Adam W. McKinney, president and co-founder of the nonprofit Tarrant County Coalition for Peace and Justice, which organized the event.
