Detroit '67

http://www.metafilter.com/168439/Detroit-67

"This July marks the 50th anniversary of the civil disturbance and unrest that erupted in Detroit. [...] As we planned our coverage, we wondered: What would it have been like to witness the summer of '67 with the tools and technologies of today?" As part of its anniversary coverage, on July 23 the Detroit Free Press began posting news reports from the time along with current-day perspective via three social media accounts: Detroit1967 (Facebook), @Detroit_1967 (Twitter), and @Detroit_1967 (Instagram), while the Detroit Historical Society has collected over 400 stories from Metro Detroit residents as part of its Detroit 1967 Oral and Written History Project.
