In the late 1960’s, Ann Arbor, Michigan was at the center of a series of brutal serial murders. Over the course of two years, seven young women would lose their lives.

During the "long, hot summer" of 1967, racial violence erupted in 159 cities all across America. From Tampa to Texas, Birmingham to Boston, Newark and New York, Cleveland, Chicago, East St. Louis...city after city exploded in strife. Detroit, the "Model City", was thought to be safe. It wasn't.
