FILE - In this July 25, 1967 file photo, women and children stroll past the burned remains of homes after riots in Detroit on July 23. The houses were a short distance from 12th Street, center of the riot activity. After the riots, a decline that had already begun would accelerate; Detroit was the nation's fourth biggest city in 1960, but would rank 21st by 2016. The middle class fled, and a proud city fell into poverty, crime and hopelessness. (AP Photo/File)

FILE - In this July 23, 1967 file photo, hundreds of people run down 12th Street on Detroit's westside throwing stones and bottles at storefronts.

Many in the community blamed frustrations blacks felt toward the mostly white police, and city policies that pushed families into aging and over-crowded neighborhoods. (AP Photo/File)

People were running around with clothes in their hands, TVs and all kinds of stuff," Townsend said. "They were stealing and burning up their own stores. I was in part of the looting. I stole a television from a furniture store. We stole liquor and stuff. I watched it. I lived it. I was part of it." (AP Photo/Corey Williams)

In this July 6, 2017 photo, Deborah Chenault Green discusses Detroit's 1967 riots from a vacant lot where her cousin's home once stood on the city's west side. Green, 62, was 12 years old and spending the night at the home when the riot started on July 23, 1967. "The national guard was going into people's houses," Green said. "I could remember the first time I heard a tank coming down 12th Street. It scared us to death because it shook everything. I always heard shooting during that time. During the riots was the first time we learned how to hit the floor when we heard gunfire." Green now lives in St. Clair, northeast of Detroit. (AP Photo/Corey Williams)
