    In February 2019, Hartford Stage will present Dominique Morisseau’s Detroit ’67. This compelling drama takes place during the Motor City’s violent 1967 uprising. Hartford also experienced racism-fueled unrest that year. We will draw connections between these events through an oral history project and lobby exhibit. Through a panel discussion, we will examine the effects of Hartford’s riots on civic life and explore current ways local activists are working to create meaningful change today.
