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

The Story of Sherwood Forest: One Hundred Years a Detroit Neighborhood by Gail Rodwan. The recent book The Story of Sherwood Forest: One Hundred Years a Detroit Neighborhood chronicles the history of a northwest Detroit community that has faced many challenges through the decades. During the course of meeting those challenges, the neighborhood has learned much about how to keep neighborhoods strong and viable as well as how to overcome obstacles common to almost every Detroit neighborhood. A group of Sherwood Forest neighbors, led by Gail Rodwan and Shirley Jackson, invites everyone to join in a discussion of where Detroit neighborhoods are now and where they are going as we work to move forward in this new era in Detroit’s history. Building on the 2017 Third Thursday theme of Detroit 1967, the discussion will include how the 1967 rebellion affected Detroit neighborhoods and how residents continue to deal with its aftermath.
