The 1967 Detroit rebellion was a pivotal event in the history of the Motor City. While Ann Arbor may seem far removed from Detroit, the themes of 1967—housing segregation, media bias, student activism, and police violence—resonated here as well.
This exhibit highlights the extensive archival resources of the Bentley Historical Library and the U-M Library’s Labadie Collection. These materials place the rebellion in the context of 1960s activism against racism and inequality in Detroit and Ann Arbor, and illustrate the significance and range of press coverage.
Join us on September 13, 6:00 p.m. for an panel discussion, Detroit '67: The View from Ann Arbor.
