‘The scars are still here’: Looking back at the 1968 Chicago riots

posted by Joe Soto - 

Sometimes one would wonder, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Fifty years ago, the world watched as anti-war protesters faced off against Chicago police during the Democratic National Convention. On Saturday, some of those present returned to Grant Park to share their memories at a peaceful demonstration against war and police violence. "I heard about it [and] I went out and started taking pictures and I got fascinated because there was so much stuff going on," Al Lieberman said. "It was like a circus, a three-ring circus." Very interesting overview of the happenings 50 years ago in Grant Park.
