Covering 300 years of history, Regional Roots uses
the immigrant experience as an introduction to the diverse landscape of
Detroit. From the earliest French and German settlers to today's
growing communities, immigrants continue to shape the region in pursuit
of the American Dream.
The project includes historic moving images and photos from multiple museum and library collections. Interviews with Detroit Mayor Dave Bing, Judge Paul Borman, Brian Dunnigan, Maha Freij, Professor George Galster, Lou Glazer, Kurt Metzger, Stan Ovshinsky, Ozzie Rivera, Mike Smith, Shirley Stancato and Sook Park Wilkinson.
