Aftermath of the 1968 Washington DC riots following the assassination of Martin Luther King.

Black people stand outside a business that has broken windows; they take goods from the business. A person crosses the street, hiding their face with clothing from the camera. Blacks walk down a sidewalk carrying loads of goods. People move hurriedly through the streets, perhaps out of a sense of danger, or perhaps out of an eagerness to take part in the looting or other illicit activity.

A glass door shows the reflection of a fire burning across the street.
