In 1943, by the time he was only 15 years old, 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 1989, at the age of 61 years old, Harold was alive when on November 9th, the Berlin Wall fell. The Wall was built by the East Germans to keep East Berliners from escaping into West Berlin, separating families and friends. When the head of the East German Communist Party announced that day that East Berliners could cross whenever they pleased, happy crowds surged across the border. People brought tools and took parts of the hated wall.
