The year 2017 is a few weeks away. Over the next fifty days or less a new President of the United States will be inaugurated. As a result, America will be ushered into an era never seen since the signing of the Declaration of Independence more than 240 years ago. 2017 also marks fifty years that a rebellion commonly known as the Newark Riot occurred in New Jersey.

There were also riots in Detroit, Plainfield (NJ), Tampa (FL) and Minneapolis-St. Paul in 1967. Coupled with six major riots during the earlier part of the decade, these uprisings underscored a transformation of America which still heavily occupies the minds of Americans across the globe.

Another renewal of the country began in November. It too will be an event that will be immersed in the spirit of America. Just like the 1960s.
