Viewing of ''12th and Clairmont'' Documentary Film
In July 2017, Detroit recognized the 50th anniversary of one of America’s most violent civil disturbances. The tumultuous summer of July 1967 was recently documented in the film, “12th and Clairmont,” directed by Brian Kaufman of the Detroit Free Press. The five days of unrest left 34 people dead, thousands injured, and many buildings burned. To tell the story, the film uses rare archival footage from the era, including newsreels, educational films, and more than 400 reels of home movies donated by Detroiters. This is combined with interviews, oral histories, and radio broadcasts to create an experience that causes the viewer to reflect on the causes and aftermath of one of the worst riots in American history. Join us for a viewing of this stirring and thought-provoking documentary which will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Craig Ramsay, Ph. D., Retired Professor of Political Science. Additionally, the documentary will serve as preparation for those OLLI members who have signed up for the Out of Town tour, “Retracing Steps of the Detroit ’67 Rebellion” scheduled to take place on Tuesday, July 9, 2019, enabling us to experience firsthand the sites of the uprising. (This event is free to registrants of the ‘Retracing Steps of the Detroit '67 Rebellion Tour' on July 9)
