Clean-Up In Baltimore; What Past The 1968 Riots Can Teach Us; Youth Respond To Unrest

Matt Purdy

  As Baltimore pulled itself together after Monday’s riots we talked to people who came out to clean up … about their views of what triggered the violence, what might come of it, and what their hopes are.

Then, we talk to law professor, political advisor and historian Larry Gibson about this week’s city trauma ... and we ask Tommy D’Alesandro III, who was mayor during the much more extensive riots of 1968, what struck him this week.

Plus, we hear from three Baltimore teens with a sobering perspective on the forces behind the violence.
