The end of the Sixties is considered a turning point in the the long term decline of the political project of American liberalism. That historical moment opened up the transition towards a Conservative hegemony and, a decade later, for the affirmation of the neoliberal political economy that has characterised the United States of the last thirty years – even among the different political shades of the Administrations. However, analyzing this process from the vantage point of the “1968” in Detroit complicates a linear narrative of liberalism decline.

This article discusses the urban riots, workers strikes and the emergence and demise of Black Power during Detroit’s “revolutionary moment”, casting them against a wider background and a long term historical perspective.
