Rush Rhees Library Exhibit: Beyond Rochester's '64 Riots http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=897219 http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=897219 Rush Rhees Library Friedlander Lobby
Monday, August 4, 2014
8:00 AM

 On view Rush Rhees Library:  "Beyond Rochester's '64 Riots: 50 Years Seeking to Make One City Out of Two."
“Race Riots Rock Rochester: Curfew Imposed” This Times of India headline on July 26, 1964 typifies hundreds throughout the world that announced startling news from a city known largely for its close-to-idyllic quality of life. The news stories reported that on a hot July evening, a small street dance party suddenly transformed into an angry mob scene of several thousand citizens countered by all available Rochester law enforcement.

At the end of the third day, when uneasy quiet was restored, the devastating results of the riots included: four people killed; heavy looting and property damage totaling more than one million dollars, with numerous commercial properties damaged beyond repair; and more than 1,000, both African Americans and whites, arrested. Rochester’s riots were classified as “most severe” and preceded many others through out the United States during the Sixties summers.

With the approaching fiftieth anniversary of Rochester’s riots, this exhibit acknowledges that it is good to remember and to continue learning from Rochester’s ’64 riots. Beyond Rochester’s ’64 Riots: 50 Years Seeking to Make One City Out of Two showcases a balance of highlights from the past, with the present-day, in search of a fresh perspective on ways to move our community forward.


The exhibit will be on view through Oct. 5. Free and open to the public.
