Are you thinking of seeing Kathryn Bigelow’s movie “Detroit?” Don’t.
Read John Hersey’s book “The Algiers Motel Incident” instead. It is one of the most remarkable books about race ever written by a white man. And it’s as accurate an account of the massacre at the Algiers Motel as currently exists.
Oh, never mind. By all means, see the movie if the marketing campaign has persuaded you it’s the kind of entertainment you like. But please...
