"This documentary tells the story of the explosive urban rebellion that tore Newark, New Jersey apart for nearly a week in the summer of 1967, sparked by the arrest of a black cabdriver by two white officers. Newark residents, police and civic officials, historians, and special commentators including Amiri Baraka, Bob Herbert, and Tom Hayden recount the details of the uprising. Tracing the unrest back to decades of industrial decline, unemployment, racial discrimination, and political corruption, the film connects the Newark riots with similar disturbances in Detroit, Watts, and over 500 other U.S. cities during the 1960s."
