“Burn, Baby, Burn”: Small Business in the Urban Riots of the 1960s
By Jonathan Bean
This article appeared in the Fall 2000 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Throughout America in the 1960s, inner-city business owners saw their dreams dashed by vandals and looters who left wreckage in their wake. Scholars have spilled much ink over the aims and “context” of the rioters but have said too little about those most victimized by their lawlessness.
