The Detroit Race Riot of 1943
by Dr. Karen Miller, Associate Professor of History, Oakland University

Thursday, April 20, 6–8 p.m.
At the height of World War II, Detroit was thrown into total turmoil for three days. The city’s riot was one of the nation’s worst civil disturbances, with 34 killed and over $2 million in property damage. The riot threatened war production, but more importantly, it also revealed a level of racial discord that continued to plague the city for generations.
