It’s Time We Knew
From the Academy Award-winning director of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, Detroit tells the gripping true story of one of the most terrifying moments during the civil unrest that rocked Detroit in the summer of ’67. Amidst the chaos of the Detroit Rebellion, with the city under curfew and as the Michigan National guard patrolled the streets, three young African American men were murdered at the Algiers motel as well as the brutal beatings of nine other people. Fifty years after what is recorded as one of the United Stated largest race riots in the countries history after the events of July 25th, 1997, the question remains: what happened at the motel?
