Stonewall Uprising
In the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a Mafia-run gay bar in Greenwich Village. Such raids weren't unusual in an era when homosexual acts were illegal in every state but Illinois, and homosexuality itself was seen as a form of mental illness. But this time, gay men and women did something they hadn't done before: they fought back. Stonewall Uprising brings to life this pivotal event, whose impact has deeply affected the course of the human rights struggle.
