Harvest of American Racism, The: The Political Meaning of Violence in the Summer of 1967

Harvest of American Racism, The: The Political Meaning of Violence in the Summer of 1967

In 1967, the Kerner Commission sought the underlying causes of violent demonstrations rocking 164 U.S. cities. But their controversial report was suppressed for half a century. Now published for the first time, the report reveals that many of these issues are still with us and examines how cities might more humanely react to protest.
