Welcome to Riotsville! With stunning archival footage, the remarkable training facilities used by police in 1960s America are revealed. In a society where the civil rights movement is growing stronger, and demonstrations are part of everyday life, model cities are being built where the police are militarized to learn how to deal with civil disobedience at any cost.

Riotsville, USA is the story of a United States that did not respond at all to the freedom struggle of African Americans in the way that history usually claims.
