Riots in Detroit

STORY BY: Terry Wynveen
YEAR: 1968
LOCATION: Southern Ontario

Terry grew up near the Canada-USA border, and he remembers when riots were breaking out in major US cities in the late 1960s. As a young boy, he watched the news, as tanks rolled through the streets of Detroit. It was very shocking to him to experience that level of civil unrest so close to where he lived. Thanks for sharing, Terry.
