Need to Know Special: Lessons From '64

Jul 22, 2014

On this week’s edition of Need to Know, we’re devoting our program to the 50th anniversary of the Rochester Riots.

We talk with national author and Rochester native Bruce Jacobs to discuss race relations locally and nationally since the riots.

And members of the WXXI News Team will gather for a Reporters’ Roundtable. They’ll share their findings after examining the current climate on some of the issues that sparked the riots of ’64.

Watch Need to Know this Thursday at 8pm on WXXI-TV, Channel 21.1 and Cable 11 or 1221.
