Dominique Morisseau's "Detroit '67"
Artwork: Joseph Loguirato
Detroit '67 is about big issues: race, home, Motown, family and a city under siege. In the tradition of A Raisin in the Sun and The Piano Lesson, Morisseau’s drama is at its core about two siblings — Chelle and Lank — clashing over the right to maintain family stability or reach for a dream of economic progress. When a white, female stranger enters their lives, the lines of the legacy they’re both fighting to protect become blurred. Set against the explosive racial tensions of the 1967 Detroit riots, which occurred over the course of five days, Morisseau might be letting us know that, despite it all, the music keeps us together.
