Publisher's Summary

The 1968 Washington, D.C. riots and the federal government's response altered the social and political climate of the nation's capitol. Producer Dan Collison presents a portrait of Washington, D.C. in 1988 against a backdrop of history, drawn from the perspectives of a variety of individuals, including Ira Sabin, a record store owner, Lillian Johnson Green, a jazz club and restaurant owner, community activist Ruth Webster, poet Gaston Neal, the mayor in 1988, Marion Barry and Senator Fred Harris, a member of the Kerner Commission. Told in the first person by writer Debra Morris, the documentary looks at the conditions which brought on the riots then, and visits neighborhoods to see what the conditions and attitudes are twenty years later.
