This month, we see “Detroit,” a historical drama from Academy Award-winning director Kathryn Bigelow starring John Boyega, Anthony Mackie and John Kransinski. It depicts events that led up to a violent riot in 1967 when tensions between the Motor City’s African-American community and law enforcement boiled over, leaving three black men dead and many more injured.
The film is rated highly on Rotten Tomatoes, but what did you think? Join us as we discuss (spoilers and all) the performances, the themes and the history in “Detroit.”
