In 1967, civil unrest spread through black communities across the country, including in Cambridge, a small city on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. While black schools and businesses went up in flames, fire trucks stood by and allowed them to burn. We look back at this moment, reflect on its meaning and context, and ask what we can learn from that history today.

- Barbara Pinder Resident of Cambridge who participated in civil rights marches as a high school student.
