Washington DC race riot 1919 more detail, Late in the evening of 18 July the wife of a sailor on her way home from work was jostled by two black men. Although frightened, the woman was not assaulted. On the following evening, several hundred off-duty white soldiers, sailors, and marines entered a black residential area in southeast Washington to avenge the incident. In route the mob assaulted several blacks and laid siege to the home of a black family. The city police and the military provost guard intervened and broke up the mob, but they were too late to prevent other clashes. Racial partisanship was an old tradition among the metropolitan police, who arrested eight blacks but only two white sailors. When policemen tried to arrest a black man later that night, he wounded one of them – the first sign that racial conflict in the nation’s capital would not be a one-sided affair The situation remained tense throughout the next day. By nightfall on 20 July violence erupted with greater intensity in the vicinity of 7th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. As police attempted to arrest a black man, a group identified by witnesses as “soldiers, sailors, and marines” intervened, assaulting blacks who were returning home from work. The incident provoked an immediate response by blacks. Scattered rioting lasted throughout the night and into the early morning of 21 July.

The new violence reversed the pattern of the earlier clashes. Now the majority of assaults were directed by blacks against white citizens and police. Black men in automobiles mounted hit-and-run attacks, while Army cavalry detachments repeatedly charged surging white mobs that were attempting to break a police cordon around black neighborhoods. In contrast to the previous nights, military personnel were no longer a source of the interracial violence; the only service personnel involved were those assigned to riot duty. Dozens of blacks and whites were injured; 15 were killed, and over 300 were arrested.
