The 50th Anniversary Of Detroit 'Riots' - With Survivor Kimberly Simmons! The Gist of Freedom as host, Mariam Guilliams welcomes Kimberly Simmons descendant of The Militant Abolitionist Lewis Leary, (John Brown Raider and The "John Price Rescue"). Kimberly will share stories of her family legacy in social activism, from Lewis Leary and The Underground Railroad Movement - Langston Hughes and The Harlem Renaissance. The exhibition is organized by the DIA and is in collaboration with the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, which organized the complementary exhibition, “Say It Loud: Art, History, Rebellion.” Both are part of a community-wide reflection on the Detroit rebellion of 1967 that involves about 100 local institutions led by the Detroit Historical Museum. “Art of Rebellion” has been generously supported by the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan and the Whitney Fund.
