Waldner Performing Arts Center

Drawing on his recently published book, The Great Uprising: Race Riots in Urban America during the 1960s, York History Professor, Dr. Peter B. Levy, will examine the causes and consequences of York, Pennsylvania's 1969 race revolt.  Why did it take place? How did it compare to the other riots that swept across the nation during the 1960s? And how has it been remembered?
