This documentary details the days of intense rioting following the death of the young Guyanese-American child Gavin Cato. It shows how the African-Americans and West Indians felt under served and mistreated by the police and the Jewish community before the riots, and how black and Jewish groups were able to reconcile after the riots. Watch this 10 minute film, featuring interviews with major activists like Reverend Al Sharpton and Rabbi Shea Hecht, to learn about the riots that would "gain national attention, end lives, end political careers and rock New York City to its core."
