Fifty years after the 1960s Newark and Detroit rebellions, their causes, meanings and legacies remain controversial. Were hundreds of black rebellions the “Harvest of Racism?” Why did the police and National Guard shoot thousands of bullets into black residential buildings, claiming they were hunting snipers and terrorists? Do the police and National Guard shoot into white residential buildings during race riots-- or is that an exclusive policy for African-Americans and Puerto Ricans? Join our estemeed panel--Say Burgin, Mark Krasovic, and Junius Williams--for this riveting program in our Conversations in Black Freedom studies series.
