Episode Summary

EDIT
Friday, July 13, 2007
AIRED:
Forty years ago, Newark erupted. Followed by Detroit, then city after city across the United States, spontaneous uprisings by disaffected African American communities who were met with brutal violence by police and National Guardsmen. In Newark, 26 people were killed and 43 in Detroit. Thousands more were injured. A presidential commission into the unrest later famously concluded that the United States was “moving toward two societies, one black, one white—separate and unequal.” Today, on the 40th anniversary of the Newark Rebellion we go back to the tumultuous days of July 1967 with renowned poet, playwright, activist and Newark native Amiri Baraka; and Larry Hamm, a Newark community organizer, chair of the People’s Organization for Progress, that organizes a commemoration of the Newark rebellion every year. He was thirteen years old during the rebellion. [includes rush transcript]moreless
