DETROIT | Final Trailer.
On Sunday, July 23, 1967, the Detroit Police Department staged a raid on an unlicensed club during a celebration for returning black veterans from the Vietnam War. While suspects were being arrested, a mob formed and started throwing rocks at the officers before looting nearby stores and starting fires, beginning the 12th Street Riot. With state authorities, elected representatives, and even emergency services unable to maintain any semblance of order, Governor George (Henry Frost III) W. Romney authorized the Michigan Army National Guard and President Lyndon B. Johnson authorized Army paratroopers to enter Detroit to provide assistance. On the second day of rioting, two cops pursued a fleeing looter. One of them, David Senak, killed the man with a shotgun against orders, but was allowed to remain on duty until his superiors could decide whether to file murder charges.
The Dramatics, a professional black R&B group, arrived in Detroit hoping to score a recording contract. Seconds before their scheduled performance at a music hall, the police shut down the venue and ordered them to leave the city. En route, their bus was attacked by rioters and the group subsequently split up, with lead singer Larry Reed (Algee Smith) and his bodyguard Fred Temple (Jacob Latimore) renting a room at the local Algiers Motel for the night.
They met two white girls, Julie Ann Hysell (Hannah Murray) and Karen Malloy (Kaitlyn Dever), who introduced them to their friends Carl Cooper (Jason Mitchell), Aubrey Pollard, Jr., Michael Clark (Malcolm David Kelley) and Lee Forsythe (Peyton Alex Smith). Carl Cooper and another friend staged a prank using a starter pistol, upsetting Julie Ann Hysell and Karen Malloy, who moved to the room of Karl Greene (Anthony Mackie), a Vietnam War veteran, while Larry Reed and Fred Temple returned to their own room.
