In 1943, on June 20th through June 22nd, the Detroit Race Riot erupted at Belle Isle Park.

The same summer, there were riots in Beaumont, Texas and Harlem, New York.

In 1961, on April 17th, about 1,000 CIA trained Cuban exiles invaded Cuba with the intention of igniting a rebellion and overthrowing Castro. They were defeated within three days.

In 1972, on June 17th, 5 men were arrested by police in an attempt to bug the Democratic National Committee headquarters in Washington D.C.’s Watergate hotel.
