Operation Bootstrap

Clip: Season 4 Episode 6 | 3m 32s | Video has closed captioning.

The traditional narrative of the Watts Uprisings suggest that businesses fled from the chaos, but the story of Operation Boostrap suggests a wholly different story. Through their work, Operation Boostrap uplifted the community and played into a larger narrative of the national civil rights movement. Host Nathan Masters speaks with activist Marva Maxey, Lou Smith's wife, and David Crittendon.
