1967 Race Riots Display

1967 Race Riots Book DisplayLibrarian Mike Klawitter recently curated a book display about the 1967 Race Riots in Detroit and Grand Rapids.

The 50th anniversary of these events causes Michiganders to ask ourselves what has or hasn’t changed, and why?

For a scholarly look at the Detroit riots, seeĀ  Joe T. Darden’s 2013 book, Detroit: Race Riots, Racial Conflicts, and Efforts to Bridge the Racial Divide. (multiple user e-book)
