Once Upon A Time.

Photo by The Detroit Free Press – From 12th and Clairmount.

It happened in Detroit. The urban metropolis once looked upon as the nation’s model city bolstered a population over one million people at the time. As the 50th anniversary of 1967 riots approaches, The Detroit Free Press kicks off its annual Freep Film Festival with the world premiere debut of 12th and Clairmount at The Fillmore. Although some of the images are difficult to digest, the must see film reminds us that there is little we can do about yesterday, but much we can do about our tomorrow.
