Please join the Reuther Library as we mark the opening of
12th Street, Detroit, 1967:
Employment, Housing, Policing, and Race Relations in Evidence
This new exhibit explores the causes and effects of Detroit’s summer of 1967 drawing from the Reuther Library’s extensive archival collections, allowing documents to speak for themselves. Visitors will have an opportunity to think critically about the evidence that exists and the evidence that is missing from the narrative.
