The African-American uprising known as the ‘Detroit Riots’ began on July 23, 1967. 

The rebellion was sparked when the local police arrested all of the attendees at a social club due to it not having a license. The mass arrest of the 82 African Americans inside the club enraged the on looking local residents who shortly after began to throw stones and bottles at the police officers.

The rage against another case of police injustice soon developed into a full on uprising in which shops and businesses were looted and set on fire. The president at the time, Lyndon B. Johnson, authorized the deployment of thousands of state troops to try and extinguish the protest. 43 people lost their lives, the majority being Black people shot dead by police and National Guardsmen.

While official narratives portray the event as a “riot” and paint the looting and cases of arson as random attacks, the socioeconomic and racial context cannot be denied. Black people had long been discriminated against in Detroit, and the mass arrest of the Black revelers served as the breaking point. Martin Luther King Jr said that “the riot is the language of the unheard.” The Detroit Uprising of 1967 was exactly that.
