Abstract:

It's the hottest day of summer in a Brooklyn street and feelings are running high. As the day progresses racial tensions build and boil over under the sweltering heat of the sun. The disquiet is centred around the local bar, Sals Famous Pizzeria, run for years by an Italian family. The local black population are unhappy that their neighbourhood is being run by whites and foreigners. The temperature continues to rise as tempers fray and the crisis escalates beyond control.
