The summer of 1967 was the height of Civil Rights Movement in Cambridge, Maryland. On the evening of July 24, 1967, a fire erupted on Pine Street, the heart of the African-American community. An elementary school, several businesses, and a church were destroyed in the fire. And a community was changed forever.
