STONEWALL UPRISING: Year That Changed America
When police raided the Stonewall Inn, a popular gay bar in Greenwich Village on June 28, 1969, the street erupted into violent protests that lasted for the next six days. The Stonewall riots, as they came to be known, marked a major turning point worldwide in the modern gay civil rights movement.
