Turning points : the Detroit riot of 1967 : a Canadian perspective

Summary: "If racial progress comes from understanding, then knowing history must be a part of it. To that end, Colling's work is a fine contribution and a 'must read.'"--Howard McCurdy, President, Windsor and Detroit Black CoalitionThe Detroit Riot of 1967 marked a turning point in the attitudes and behaviour of people in all walks of life in the Border Cities. As the citizens of Windsor watched their nearest neighbour burn, the way they felt about Detroit changed radically. Perceptions of race relations, of the city across the river, and indeed of themselves, were altered in ways many had not thought.
