Join the DC History Center for a discussion about When the Smoke Cleared and the history and legacy of the 1968 rebellions in Washington, DC with author Kyla Sommers in conversation with Vann R. Newkirk II, senior editor at The Atlantic and the host of Holy Week: The Story of a Revolution Undone. An "eye-opening history" (Publishers Weekly), When the Smoke Cleared tells the story of the Washingtonians who seized the moment following the 1968 rebellions to rebuild a more just society, one that would protect and foster Black political and economic power.
