From PBS NewsHour: Artists reflect pain and consequences of Detroit riots
Last Updated by
Fifty years since Detroit devolved into a five-day period of violence and unrest between the National Guard and the city’s black citizens, known as the 1967 riots, some of the city's leading cultural institutions are asking questions and using art to look back and consider the resonance today. Jeffrey Brown offers a look at the many ways museums, artists and scholars are weighing in.
Featured exhibits: Art of Rebellion: Black Art of the Civil Rights Movement (Detroit Institute of Arts), Say It Loud: Art, History, Rebellion (The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History), and Detroit '67: Perspectives (Detroit Historical Museum).
