at this moment, there are at least ten areas in towwher >> at this moment there's at least ten areas in town where looters have broken in or fire bombs have set fire. it looks like a b-52 raid in detroit. >> that's john heart reporting for cbs news 50 years ago on the social unrest that ignited the city of detroit. police raided an unlicensed bar in a black neighborhood in 1967 and that lead to the 12th street riots. the violence was in response to police brutality and decades of racial inequality. over five days more than 40 people died and more than 2,000 buildings were damaged or detroyed. the new movie centers on the riots. three unarmed black teenagers were shot dead by white police officers. detroit is directed by catherine bigelow of the hurt locker and zero dark 30. anthony mackey portrays a real

8:42 am
this story? >> predominantly that. it is so relatable today. when i was first introduced to it it was right around the time of ferguson and it's happening today and it's happening tomorrow and it's happening, it's recurring so i hope that it can perhaps invite the dialogue to encourage a bridge between an incredible bridge of divide in this country. >> did it feel very personal for you anthony? >> very much so. it's funny being a parent of little bodieys you try to do wo that they can watch and learn from and when i read this script and read green specifically i knew catherine would give me that opportunity. >> how did you go about finding real life stories that you can incorporate into the movie? >> well, predominantly i used court records and testimony and requests the information that we got from that so a tremendous
8:43 am
amount of research and mark that wrote the hurt locker and zero dark 30 wrote the screen play and i thought it was a tremendous screen play and also met with real life people who are involved in this incident. hannah murray is the character of julie who say real character that was with me on the set every day and then larry reid who plays a member of a motown group called the dramatics so hearing their rendition of this they went through really galvanized my determination to tell the story. >> could detroit happen today? >> it seems all far too likely in many respects but i'm really encouraged by a conversation beginning. there was a screening last night on capitol hill hosted by representative conyers that's in the movie. >> that's in the movie.

>> and he is furthering the bill to end racial profiling and so i think this film could hopefully encourage that conversation. >> she asked me to read the phone book i could do that. >> anthony. i want to talk to you about your character because he's still living, did you meet with him before you took this part? >> well, we haven't been able to find it. >> would you have wanted to meet with him? >> no. >> because as an actor the best tool you have is what the writer did giving us the script and what i would hate to have happened was have at least one chance meeting with this man and correct what we had created with this story. i feel like it was more important for someone like mark to meet him and then create that but i think it says a lot about his character that he was the first-person to speak out about this tragedy and he was one of the guys in the hotel being a military vet that had an understanding of how to survive and i think with this movie the
8:45 am
most important message that comes out of it is survival. >> you laughed when i answered the question about could detroit happen today because you think that the possibility of just an incident could cause the city to go up in flames. >> i think if you look at the 1920s furks look at t, if you l, in the 2000s we're in that decade of turmoil and combustion. every 50 years america goes through a growth and from that growth, the country transforms dramatically and right now, we're in that pressure cooker that all we need to do is add a match and it will explode. >> and the two of you haven't been together since hurt locker. there must be a comfort level between the two of you. on a set that would be very difficult. it was very tough watching the movie for me what this must have been like on the set for both you. >> you know there was a common understanding. there was a common understanding
