Smoldering Liberty City: Remembering The McDuffie Riots
Thirty-five years ago, Miami's Liberty City was smoldering -- flames leapt from the shells of cars while people looted businesses.
Eighteen people died, and more than $100 million worth of property was destroyed.
The McDuffie Riots were more violent than what happened in Baltimore and Ferguson, but there are lots of similarities.
The destruction here came after a slew of confrontations between police and black Miamians. The tension reached its peak when police were acquitted in the death of Arthur McDuffie, a black insurance broker from a well respected family.
Press play to hear from three Miamians who witnessed the riots, and scroll below to see images from Liberty City's streets then.
