When: Sat., June 24, 10 a.m. 2017
Were the events of July 23 to August 1, 1967 a riot, rebellion, insurrection, or revolution? What underlying problems contributed to that fateful week? How have those events shaped the city over the last 50 years? The Detroit Historical Society has spent two years sourcing diverse communities, scholars, and historical archives to answer these questions and provide a more encompassing look at the forces at work in Detroit. A complete schedule for opening weekend events, including curator lectures, family-friendly activities, group discussions, and a showcase of oral histories is available online.
