Stonewall exhibit showcases flash point in LGBTQ community

Clip: 06/29/2019 | 5m 51s

It was 50 years ago this week that gay, lesbian, trans and other gender-nonconforming people rioted at a bar called the Stonewall Inn after a police raid. The New York Public Library has one of the largest collections of LGBTQ artifacts from that tumultuous period, which is now being displayed in a major exhibit, "Love & Resistance: Stonewall 50." NewsHour Weekend's Ivette Feliciano reports.
