The 1967 riots in Detroit Michigan was one of the most dangerous situations in modern American history.
The riots are without question one of the biggest mass movements of citizens the country has ever seen.
This was the people, against the army, and it was violent.
The upcoming film Detroit looks to recreate this horrendous situation from the ground floor.
Here is the plot summary from First Light productions
