Many consider 1967 as a pivotal year in Detroit's history. The events of the summer of 1967 have been described as a "riot," "rebellion," and "uprising." However, many do not have a true understanding of what happened, why it happened, and the activism and community engagement that sprouted in Detroit from these events. We invite you to participate in Detroit 67: Perspectives, a dialogue-based, facilitated experience. Attendees will visit the exhibition and participate in discussions surrounding the events of the turbulent summer of 1967. Following the facilitated portion, attendees will be given additional time to reflect, experience portions of the exhibit individually, and to ask questions. This event allows attendees to examine the footsteps Detroiters took in the past in hopes of inspiring and encouraging our future generations to shape a brighter future for the city of Detroit.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore Detroit's history leading up to, during, and after the summer of 1967.
  • Increase understanding of what happened during the summer of 1967, why it happened, and how it continues to impact the city today.
  • Gain knowledge of how social workers can advocate and participate in shaping the future of Detroit.
