Hot Summer of '64 -

Speaker: Dan Cody
The decade of the1960s was a decade of change. 1964 was a pivotal year in the history of the country and Rochester, as well. During three days in July, civil unrest forced Rochester to face its shortcomings and make changes. Rochester would never be the same after that hot summer.
