  • This film shows footage of riots that occurred in West Palm Beach and Riviera Beach on July 30, 1967. The riots stemmed from an altercation between two African-American men and local police attempting to make an arrest at the Blue Heron Bar. The police eventually arrested 45 in connection with the fires started during the riots, which caused an estimated $350,000 in damage to the Mullins Lumber Yard.
