Anthology on the Detroit Riot of 1967, the most devastating event in Detroit history. In the commemorative essays contained in this anthology, it's not so much about why the riot happened, but what it was like to see it happen firsthand. The book contains 13 riveting stories from people who lived to tell them. One story tells how a teenager's excitement of going to see Stevie Wonder at the Fox Theatre in july 1967 turned into a harrowing rescue mission. Another writer tells how after having a National Guardsman's rifle shoved in her face, she had a shift in consciousness about civil rights and joined the Black Panther Party as a teen.
