I was born in Detroit in 1960, and lived for 10 years a block off of Mack Avenue in one of the burbs. I was 3 when JFK died and have no recollection of it. I was 8 when both MLK and RFK were assassinated and tend to blur the two of them together. And both memories are tied very closely to the Detroit Riots of 1967.
My parents must not have paid much attention to the news in those days because we didn't hear about any of them until the afternoon the following day. Because of the riots of 1967, after both 1968 assassinations the Detroit area was put on a strict curfew.
I remember being appalled that anyone would do such a thing, and being impressed with Rosey Grier for tackling Sirhan Sirhan.
The other event that I tie together with the riots and these two assassinations is the Detroit Tigers (and Denny McLean) winning the World Series in 1968. Somehow that is attributed with helping heal the city. I never quite understood that.
