In July 1967, Detroit experienced one of America’s most violent civil disturbances. The film directed by Brian Kaufman fuses rare archival footage from the era – including newsreel, educational films and more than 400 reels of home movies donated by Detroiters – along with illustrations. The narrative combines contemporary interviews, oral histories, radio broadcasts, and dispatch recordings to create an immersive film experience that transports the audience back in time to explore the causes and aftermath of Detroit’s most pivotal moment in history.

Followed by a panel discussion. Screening is co-sponsored by the Princeton Public Library and McCarter Theater Center, in conjunction with McCarter’s production of the Dominique Morisseau play Detroit ’67.  The screening is free but tickets are limited. Click here to get tickets.
