This week, WXXI News is airing a special series - “ Lessons from July ’64" -  not only to look back, but to also look forward at the issues still impacting that same community.

Connections: Reflecting on July 1964

Reflecting back on the July 1964 race riots and the film that documented the disturbances, "July '64".

This is a special double-length show as we come up on the 50th anniversary of the race riots in Rochester, and some would call part of the events a riot, and other parts a rebellion. The underlying issues at the roots of the disturbances were highlighted in the documentary "July '64"

The film was made 10 years ago and was directed by Carvin Eison and produced by Chris Christopher. Both were guests to discuss the making of the flim, what they learned in the creation of the film, and the progress that has been made 10 years later. 

WXXI-TV will air "July '64" at these times:

Monday, July 21 at 9 p.m.

Sunday, July 27 at 11 p.m.

City12 will air "July '64" Thursday, July 24 at 10 p.m.
