Summer Film Series: Revolution '67

July 14 2018 | 3:00pm to July 15 2018 | 3:55pm

July 1967 doesn’t only mark a significant time in Detroit’s history, but in the history of Newark, New Jersey as well. Revolution ’67 focuses on the urban rebellion that took place in Newark, which helped reveal the long-standing racial, economic and political forces which generated inner city poverty. Perspectives told from city officials, police and residents shed a light on what took place and how decades of industrial decline, unemployment, job and housing discrimination, and more led up to the uprising. This film also connects what occurred in Newark to the events that occurred in Detroit, Watts, and several other cities during the 1960s.

Admission is FREE. Shown at the Detroit Historical Museum. Running time: 87 minutes.
