Detroit – Challenging the Narrative
|Mary E. Byrnes, Ph.D., MUP|
| The focus will be on these three myths:
1. Detroit was doing fine until one day in 1967. There was a big riot and everything fell apart.
2. Through actions, words, and policies, Detroit’s first African American mayor, Coleman Alexander Young, who took office in 1974, created the racial divisions in this region.
3. Unemployment, poverty, crime, and vacant buildings all stem from character flaws in people, and, obviously, from the residents of Detroit. This presentation not only interrogates and “busts” these three myths but also examines the implications to policy making.
