Sarah Hulett - Storyteller

My maternal grandfather, Daniel O’Mara, was a police officer in the 10th precinct that summer. And reckoning with that personal history – and the broader social forces that led up to that violent summer – is something I will probably be doing for the rest of my life.
I’m also a reporter, editor, and Detroiter. And I feel very fortunate to be able to be a part of a project that takes a fresh look at the events of that summer 50 years ago, through the stories of the 43 people who lost their lives in the unrest.
I am the assistant news director at the NPR affiliate Michigan Radio, where I edit the work of several reporters.  I’ve reported extensively on Detroit for Michigan Radio and national outlets including NPR and Marketplace.

My interest in the 1967 rebellion is both personal and professional.
