Here is a series of amazing photos that we came across on Flickr showing the 1968 riots in D.C. We’ve posted some stuff on the riots in the past, like this film clip, and these photos.
Here is a photo showing the Tivoli Theater after the riots.

Below is a shot of the building on the northwest corner of 14th and Columbia, where the 7-Eleven is today.
We have a lot of cool stuff posted about Columbia Heights. Make sure you check them out, especially this one.
You have to check out this guy’s Flickr album from the riots. They’re really incredible. He also has a ton of amazing old photos that you should check out.
