Detroit the Movie

The 1967 Detroit riot, also known as the 12th Street riot or the 1967 Detroit rebellion, was a violent public disorder that turned into a civil disturbance in Detroit, Michigan. Police confrontations with patrons and observers on the street evolved into one of the deadliest and most destructive riots in the history of the United States, lasting five days.  View a movie clip by clicking here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZvjOjWBySM
