Set in the prelude to Detroit’s turbulent 1967 summer, Northern Lights 1966 is the inspiring story of a group of Detroit students who joined forces to demand educational equality. The original play with music by acclaimed playwright Michael Dinwiddie focuses on a dramatic student protest at Detroit’s Northern High School in 1966. While based on events over 50 years ago, the issues explored in Northern Lights 1966 are as current as today’s headlines.
Performances are on select dates Saturday, May 12 through Sunday, May 20 at the Detroit Institute of Arts.
