Detroit uprising

 

Five days of violence

left more than 1,400 buildings burned,

more than 7,000 people arrested

and 43 people dead

— 33 African-Americans

and 10 whites.

 

TV sets transported

images of cars and buildings

engulfed in orange flames

and black smoke

into American living rooms.

 

After the uprising,

whites and middle-class

African-Americans fled the city,

leaving poor and working-class

African-American families

to fend for themselves.

(The Detroit riots) lasted five days

and hastened the economic decline

of a city already plagued

by economic disparities

and racial tensions.

 

The riot started

after police raided a nightclub

and arrested 82 people.

The Newark race riots 50 years on:

is the city in danger of repeating the past?

At least 26 people died in the rebellion of 1967,

which devastated the city for decades.

 

But as Newark moves on and memory fades,

those who remember 1967

worry about losing the connection

between oppression then and now

In July 1967,

Newark erupted with violence

after rumors circulated

that a black cabdriver had been beaten

and killed by white police officers.

 

He was actually alive

— arrested and injured —

but for many black residents,

it was just another example

of Newark’s systemic problems

with police abuse, racism,

and corruption.

 

After six days of unrest,

23 people were dead;

725 were injured.
