Detroit 67

Jan 11, 2018 - Feb 24, 2018

It’s the summer of 1967, and the soulful sounds of Motown are breaking records and breaking down barriers. Siblings Chelle and Lank make ends meet by running an unlicensed bar in their Detroit basement, a risky business as police crack down on after-hours joints in black neighborhoods. When Lank offers shelter to an injured white woman, tensions escalate both in their home and in their community—and they find themselves caught in the middle of the violent ’67 riots. Detroit ‘67 explores a moment rife with police brutality, immense racial divide, and a powder keg of emotions.
