Filmmaker Bruce Harper talks about 'Summer '67'

Detroit School of Arts very own teen radio talk show "Can You Relate," produced and hosted by Kandi Alexander, who had the privilege of interviewing Bruce Harper, director of "Summer ‘67." This documentary is based on “the 43 lives that were lost during the 1967 rebellion," a tribute to the 50th anniversary. The documentary was originally supposed to revolved around the rebellion itself but Harper being a “Detroit supporter” did not want to encourage or create a "Detroit-bashing story.” So while looking for a different approach, he learned from a friend of his, Joe Spencer, that 43 lives were lost during the rebellion.
