Starting the night of July 18, Halifax police were put to the test. It started with 150 people, most of them black, charging several blocks through the city's downtown bar district. Fifteen people, all white, were injured. Black leaders said the riot was sparked by an incident the night before when some blacks were denied entry to a bar. At a community meeting, resident Buddy Adams had some words of advice for Halifax Police Chief Vince MacDonald.
