Detroit ’67

In 1967 Detroit, the year of the riots and violent racial confrontations, two African-American siblings are running an after-hours ‘nightclub’ spot in their basement. A haunting period piece. A compelling tale of people struggling to find their place in society. Winner 2014 Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History.
