Movie Info

Racial tensions between Hasidic Jews and African-Americans come to a boil in the Crown Heights section of Queens in this powder-keg drama based on real-life events that took place in the summer of 1991. Over the course of three days, the tensions between the borough's racially divided citizens would result in a tragic explosion of murder, riots, and chaos. Only through the aid of two devoted community leaders determined to put their differences aside and bring peace back to the streets will this neighborhood be able to begin to heal the deep-rooted wounds of a summer that will forever haunt the citizens of Crown Heights.

Audience Reviews for Crown Heights

This is suppose to be a true story of a riot that broke out between Blacks and Jews back in 1991 in Brooklyn. The movie seemed more like an after school special. It was a nice touch that they added some real news footage. I thought the movie ended abruptly though.
