And in Detroit, it all came to a head. In this three episode mini-series, hosted by Courtney B. Vance, we find out what really happened on the streets of Detroit over one hot week -- and why.

Very well done

Those with their one star reviews seem triggered. This was beautifully done. History is history, boo thangs.

If Twitter wrote a history book

Within a few minutes police will be monstrous, white people cause the riot, and the poor folks breaking the law will be the victims. Nothing of the migration, crime, and culture of ignorance imported from the south. This is when America had an opportunity to shine. Instead it burned.
