Event description
As part of Detroit Design 139 Inclusive Futures, we facilitate conversations for preserving Detroit's African American history.

About this Event

What are the conversations we need to have now so that Detroit's descendants no longer have to solve the same problems that plague our communities today?

A half-century after the 1967 uprising/rebellion, black historians often still feel out of place in the archive world. Our discussion, hosted Noir Design Parti, is looking at helping to identify concerns, identify collection resources for Black history archives, and promote the needs of archivists/ historians and archives from people of color and the places important to their history.

There will be a short introductory presentation and round table discussions by historians and archivists of Detroit’s leading historical projects and collections.

Round Table Topics:

1. Black Bottom Street View

2. Detroit Sound Conservancy

Project Organizer: Carleton S. Gholz, PhD

3. 20th Century Civil Rights Sites project

Project Organizer: Ruth Mills of Quinn Evans Architects

4. Detroit Historical Society's Black Historical Sites Committee

Project Organizers: Karen Hudson-Samuels and David Head

5. Carl Nielbock of Gallery of Metals and Detroit Windmill
