How do we create caring, sustainable, and interconnected Metro Detroit communities that respect the dignity of all? How do we learn our histories surrounding the 1967 Rebellion while going beyond shame, blame, and guilt? How do we acknowledge how we fit in the systemic racial and economic injustice that catalyzed the 1967 Rebellion while creating healthy and empowering community conversation that heals and leads us to act with accountability?
Join us for an evening of intergenerational dialogue, personal narrative monologue, and a walk through history as we partner with the Boggs Center, Repair the World, and The Well to host a discussion on Wednesday, June 28th from 6:30 - 9 at the Repair the World Workshop at 2701 Bagley Ave.

On July 23, 1967, after constant acts of police brutality, unequal education, housing discrimination, and political disenfranchisement - the Detroit Police attempted to arrest 82 people at the United Community League for Civic Action. This was the start of the 1967 Rebellion. And one of the most significant episodes in Detroit's Black History. When it ended 5 days later, there were 43 people dead, 1,189 injured, 7,231 arrested, 2,509 stores destroyed, 388 families left homeless, and 412 buildings destroyed, with a total of $80 million in property damage. And it ended with the Algiers Motel.
