Baltimore '68: Riots And Rebirth In An American City
Baltimore '68: Riots and Rebirth in an American City
The first comprehensive study of one city, Baltimore, forty years after the unrest that swept across some 120 U.S. cities.
"These essays and primary accounts examine the roots of the broad spectrum of events that led to rioting in Baltimore following Martin Luther King's assassination and how these events shaped the social and economic fabric of today's Baltimore. I know it will be taken from library shelves for many years to come as a primary resource for historical study." -Carla D. Hayden, CEO, Enoch Pratt Free Library, Baltimore
