Stonewall Uprising - Spirit Of The
The Yesterday TV channel continues its Spirit Of The Sixties
season with a special focus on the struggle for civil rights.
Stonewall Uprising tells the remarkable story when police raided
the Stonewall Inn, the popular gay bar in the Greenwich Village
section of New York City on 29 June, 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 in
the modern gay civil rights movement in the United States and
around the world.
At that time New York had the largest gay population in America.
But it was also the city that had the most aggressively upheld
anti-homosexual laws. Something had to give, and in a decade where
riots and protest were commonplace thanks to a monumental shift in
attitudes the raid on the Stonewall bar precipitated an explosion
Using eyewitness accounts and rare archival footage, the
Stonewall Uprising documents an often forgotten but hugely
important event for the civil rights movement.
