In class we were exposed to the riots that occurred in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles in the 19th century. We looked in depth at Abu-Lughod’s book Race, Space and Riots: In Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles, this book highlighted the issues of race and space in terms of riots. This paper will explore the influence of these two factors in the riots that took place in Baltimore. How did space and race influence the riots? Were both factors equally influential in the events that took place?
