Detroit ’67: The Motown Sound is featured in play at NC A&T University
The Paul Robeson Theatre on the campus of NC A&T State University will be the scene for a two week run of Detroit ’67, a play directed by Miller Lucky Jr. and written by Dominique Morisseau.
The play is centered around 1967 Detroit, Motown music is getting the party started. Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by turning their basement into an after-hours party joint. But, when a mysterious woman finds her way into their lives, the siblings clash over much more than the family business. As their pent-up feelings erupt, so does their city, and they find themselves caught in the middle of the violent riots of 1967. Detroit ’67 highlights racial tensions and family dysfunction. The Motown Sound is the backdrop for this chaotic time in American history where race, equality and justice are confronted at home and in the streets.
