Local Event ~ Recalling the Riots of 1964

July 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the Rochester Race Riots. Joseph Avenue, where the Lincoln Branch Library is now located, was at the center of events that would profoundly affect the city in the course of just three turbulent days. On July 15th, 17th, 29th, and 31st MCC Professor Verdis Robinson will lead a walking tour of Joseph Avenue and discuss the riots and historically significant surrounding the library. Refreshments provided. Call 428-8210 for more information.
P.S.: You might also - not alternatively, but also - watch Carvin Eison's July '64.
