The 1943 Detroit Race Riot started on the evening of June 20 and lasted through June 22.

It was suppressed after 6,000 federal troops were ordered into the city to restore peace. A total of 34 people were killed, 25 of them African-Americans and most at the hands of white police or National Guardsmen; 433 were wounded, 75 percent of them African-American.
