ADVANCE FOR USE TUESDAY, AUG. 1, 2017 AND THEREAFTER-John Hall looks at a photo of himself, left, in a prison boxing ring, at his house in Detroit on Friday, May 19, 2017. When Hall was released from a Michigan prison in February 2017 after nearly 50 years behind bars, he had $1.37 in his pocket. At 67, he carried his life's possessions in a few boxes: a small TV and a photo album filled with faded newspaper clippings and pictures of himself in white satin boxing trunks, from his fighting days as "Kid Hall." With no family to greet him, he was met by his lawyer and volunteers who brought him to his first home _ a Detroit rescue mission. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)

In this July 6, 2017 photo, David and Theresa Welsh revisit the neighborhood where they lived when the Detroit riot started on July 23, 1967. The couple had just married and was living in an apartment building in one of Detroit's mostly black neighborhoods. "The main cause (behind the riot) was segregation and mistreatment of black residents by a white police department," said Theresa Welsh, 71. "Nobody bothered us. We were a couple of white people wandering around. I don't think there were black people wanting to kill white people. But why would you destroy your own neighborhood?" The couple now lives in Ferndale, north of Detroit. (AP Photo/Corey Williams)
