Fire Bombing, 11/21/67: Dr. Hadley Hartshorn—acting head of Texas Southern University, a historically black university—and his wife survey the damage to their home following a firebomb attack. On the night of November 20, the couple awoke to the sound of breaking glass. Outside, they found one small fire on the front porch and another in a flower bed. The same evening, unknown assailants threw two firebombs through the glass door of a grocery store located in a predominantly African-American neighborhood. The incident, most likely an act of white racism, came just months after the deadly encounter between Texas Southern students and local law enforcement, commonly known as the TSU Riot.
