Our Third Thursday speaker series continues this summer at the Detroit Historical Museum.

"Detroit 1967 and Today: Spatial Racism and Ongoing Cycles of Oppression" by Dr. Peter Hammer, Wayne State University.

More than any other city, Detroit exemplifies the ongoing legacy of northern racism. Anyone who understands this country’s history of structural racism knows that some form of civil unrest in the late 1960s was inevitable in Detroit. Sadly, these same racialized forces of oppression have operated largely unabated since 1967, further stamping “separate and unequal” onto the landscape of Southeast Michigan. This talk will examine the legacy of 1967 on contemporary crises in Detroit relating to housing, employment and a downward economic spiral.
