Remembering the Detroit riots 50 years on

Sunday marks the 50-year anniversary of one of the worst civil disturbances in US history.

Many historians mark the Detroit riots on July 23 as the beginning of the decline of one of the country's largest cities.

The event is being remembered at museums and theatres across the city.

Al Jazeera's John Hendren reports from Detroit.
