40th-Anniversary Commemorations of Late 1960s Riots/Rebellions

Dear Scholars,

I am working on a comparative project that explores the 40th-anniversary commemorations of late 1960s riots/rebellions that took place in Newark, NJ (1967); Louisville, KY (1968); and Baltimore, MD (1968). I would be most grateful for any suggestions or recommendations for sources on the 21st-century commemorations of these civil disturbances. Please respond to rosie.uyola@gmail.com.
