Anniversary of the Detroit Riots

  • Wyndham Gardens Hotel 2900 Jackson Road Ann Arbor, MI, 48103 United States (map)

Fifty years ago (1967) Detroit experienced one of the worst riots in American history. The 5 days of unrest left 43 people dead, thousands injured, and many buildings burned. Detroit's tumultuous summer was recently documenting in the film, "12th and Clairmont," directed by Brian Kaufman. Since then, what have we learned and how are we different? Kaufman's expertise is in visual journalism and documentary work.
