Abstract:

This paper will critique some of the root causes of the Urban Rebellions of the 1960s, and some of the long-term effects of those events in the African American community today. The findings and conclusions of the Kerner Commission report will be addressed in relation to the long-term debate between politicians, scholars, theologians, law enforcement, and community activists about upheavals in Watts, Newark, Detroit, Harlem, Baltimore, etc. Finally, Dr. King’s observations about the evils of racism, militarism, and economic exploitation will be addressed with respect to the “Guns vs Butter” debate that has continued since the 1960s.
