Detroit 67: Perspectives

Detroit 67: Perspectives
June 27, 2017 paperlesslion

Exploring the past may help us discover the way forward. See how when the Detroit Historical Museum presents Detroit 67: Perspectives. The new exhibition brings together hundreds of individual perspectives, diverse groups and communities to explore the events of July 1967 – a time experienced and remembered as “The Riots,” “The Rebellion,” and many views in-between and from outside.

Special activities during Opening Week include curator chats, facilitated discussions and programs led by Detroit Historical Society’s community partners. Click here for details.

Learn more via the DetroitJournalism Cooperative’s (DJC) Intersection Project.  Chastity Pratt Dawsey of Bridge Magazine and Keith Owens of the Michigan Chronicle will join the MiWeek team to talk about the series of reports filed by the DJC focusing on the issues that led to the 1967 rebellion and where the city stands with regard to these same challenges. Later in the show, the MiWeek team will debate how Detroit can move forward over the next 50 years in the areas of policing, opportunity, education, housing, and race.
