Washington, DC remembers the 50th anniversary of the 1968 civil uprising, which took place between April 4 and 8. Downtown DC, Logan Circle, Capitol Hill, Shaw, and Columbia Heights were at the center of the civic uprisings sparked by anger over Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination and longstanding discrimination. Twelve people died and hundreds of businesses were decimated. The military, more than 13,000 strong, arrived in an attempt to contain the crowds. Their presence became an indelible part of the city’s history.

The links below are just some of the interesting ways local and national publications are recognizing the anniversary.

Saving The Black Family:

The Black Family In Crisis!!!

The number of two-parent families in the Black community in America has fallen from approximately 78% in the fifties and early sixties to about 25% today. Our divorce rate has almost doubled. All of this signals a deepening crisis in the relationship between Black males and Black females. How significant is this to us?  How can we reverse this trend?
