Lessons From July '64: A Need To Know Special

On this edition of Need to Know, we devote our program to the 50th anniversary of the Rochester riots. Disparities in employment, troubled police relations, racism in housing, and concentrated poverty, among other issues, plagued certain neighborhoods and residents in our community five decades ago. And 50 years later we ask the question: How far have we come? National author and speaker Bruce Jacobs and members of the WXXI News Team help answer that question.
