Kenny Leon's True Colors Puts On Detroit '67, WCLK's Jamal Ahmad Digs Deep

Detroit-67.jpg

Kenny Leon's True Colors Theatre is a beacon of art and African American Culture and also a friend of WCLK.  Their latest production of Dominique Morriseau's Detroit '67 runs through March 8 at the Southwest Arts Center and is a story about life and growing up in the middle of Motown and the riots of 1967.

Actors Tinashe Kajese-Bolden and Enoch King stopped by the station to talk with Jamal Ahmad about this play, which asks some hard questions about what we learned from the 1960s and where we're headed.

More information about Detroit '67 at the Southwest Arts Center through March 8 is available here.
