Clayton Rye’s award-winning film Detroit Civil Rights Trilogy presents three personal stories that chronicle black history in Michigan told in the words of the subjects. The three unsung heroes, all natives of Detroit, shared their stories in the documentary to show their influence on history and the impact it made on their personal lives. Sara Elizabeth Haskell became known as the “Rosa Parks of the Boblo Boat” in 1945; Duane Gerlach, staged black face minstrel shows for more than 10 years in a Detroit suburb; and Dave Moore, who was the last survivor of the Ford Hunger March, told of his experiences during the Great Depression.
