Riot? Rebellion? Uprising? Movement? Explore how and why July 1967 events are recounted differently depending on whom you ask.

The Detroit Orientation Institute at Wayne State University is pleased to announce its partnership with Detroit '67: Looking Back to Move Forward. In 2017, the DOI Detroit Dialogue series will help link the efforts commemorating the civil unrest of the summer of 1967 with broader themes that still impact our region.

This second event in the series will feature historians and Detroit residents that lived through the events in late July to explore what exactly transpired and different interpretations of those events. The program will include dinner and a group dialogue facilitated by Jeri Stroupe (Detroit Revitalization Fellow at Wayne State University's Office of Economic Development).

Date: Tuesday, July 18
Time: 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
