A Short History of Racism in Detroit Virtual Tour, 22 June | Online Event | AllEvents.in A Short History of Racism in Detroit Virtual Tour
This tour will provide an overview of some of the most devastating policies and events in Detroit’s last 100 years and their impact today.

Black Detroiters have been a part of Detroit’s greatest moments but have also had to bear the brunt of its worst. Too often those low-points stemmed from racist federal and local policies that disproportionately impacted the city’s Black residents. From segregation and redlining, to police brutality and the destruction of Black and immigrant neighborhoods, systemic racism has been a part of the city’s story since its founding.
This virtual tour will provide an overview of some of the most devastating policies and events in Detroit’s last 100 years, help attendees understand how our region’s past is still impacting our region today and provide suggestions on how allies can be part of the solution moving forward.
Tour discussion points include:
-Ossian Sweet House
-Birwood Wall
-Black Bottom and Paradise Valley
-Redlining and Restrictive Covenants
-Uprising of 1967
And much more...
