For now, a placeholder for some posts on 67-68

Such as
German history and the Stasi: The gunshot that hoaxed a generation | The Economist

Violence in Europe and America
I was in Detroit shortly after the German incident
July 23rd and for about a week afterwards
The "12th Street" Riot, the beginning of the end for Detroit as a city
