Abstract

In May 1980, Dade County gained the unenviable distinction of becoming the first large U.S. metropolitan area to experience a major racial disturbance during the 1980s. The damage amounted to about one hundred million dollars and eighteen deaths. The areas where most of the 1980 disturbances occurred are identified and the background characteristics of the people involved, and some of the causes for this riot are examined. -from Authors
