Last July, the Ebling and You program, heard weekdays on WILS AM 1320 in Lansing, aired a sixteen part documentary I produced to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 1967 Detroit riot. The documentary aired on July 24 and 25, 2007.

As the 41st anniversary approaches, I have set up a You Tube channel which archives the entire production.

Any and all feedback on the documentary is welcome.

Sincerely,

Doug Warren

I found it extremely informative. It severely contradicts what many in this region swear never ever happened. That's probably going to be the biggest criticism of this documentary, that many don't believe (or refuse to admit) any of the incidents described in this documentary ever took place.

What things do people claim never happened?

Crumbled_pavement, do you mean the after-effects that they swear never happened or the riot itself?

Thank you for your effort, Doug_warren.

I've bookmarked it and am continuing to listen to it at part 2.

Detroitrise, I mean the conditions that lead up to the riot.
