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.
