The threat of a large-scale white riot prompted by United States policies in Indochina cropped up for the first time in the planning of the October 1967 march on Washington. Dave Dellinger, a Quaker pacifist first incarcerated for refusing to serve in World War II and the editor of Liberation magazine, was the primary organizer of the affair. He recognized that the anti-war movement was at a grow-or-die juncture, and, committed to enhancing its appeal to the young, invited Jerry Rubin to collaborate in its planning. New segments of the African American community had participated in the riots that had been shaking the country. Black men, in particular, had, up until the emergence of the “civil disturbance,” largely boycotted the civil rights movement, because they found that its insistence on non-violence insufferably constrained a perceived patriarchal duty to protect women and children. From 1965 to 1970, domestic bombings evinced a clear progression from property destruction to violence against people.
