"The Detroit Historical Society, through its Detroit 67: Looking Back to MOVE FORWARD community engagement project, has taken the lead to convene an unprecedented community-wide effort. An outcome of this multi-year project will be the creation of a model for bringing diverse voices and communities together around the effects of a historic crisis to find their roles in the present and inspire the future.
The Detroit 67 Project and its centerpiece, the Detroit 67 Exhibition, will cover a period of 150 years. We will look back 100 years – from 1917 to today and forward 50 years to 2067 and use an understanding of our collective history to inform and define our future. Those who engage with Detroit 67 will be able to better understand the events leading up to July, 1967, where we are today, and connect to efforts that are moving Detroit forward." Learn more
