Created from a simple police raid of an unlicensed, after-hours bar, the aftermath was 43 dead, 1,189 injured, 7,200 arrests, and more than 2,000 buildings destroyed. This is an important volume to give to your readers so that they understand the factors that lead up to an event like this, and understand its controversies. The essays collected here will activate your reader's critical thinking skills, allowing them to question their world in light of the riots. Essayist Lois H. Smith reports that the Detroit Riots show the urgent need for elected urban black leadership. Lyndon Baines Johnson's essay explains why he sent troops to Detroit. H. Rap Brown states that minority groups must revolt against oppression. Two essays debate whether the riots actually led to the crisis that Detroit is in now. Personal first-hand accounts round out this book, making sure that your readers obtain a feeling for the event as well.
