On July 27, 1919, a teenage African-American boy was killed after a white man threw a stone that hit him. The resulting community response led to violence leaving 38 people dead and 537 wounded and came to be known as the Chicago race riot of 1919. The book explores the complex causes of the Chicago race riot and documents the events of the riot with photographs and historical documents.
