MONDAY, NOVEMBER 97:00—8:00 PM

Within Detroit’s multi layered history lie stories both familiar and hidden. Think of Cadillac’s 1701 landing, the 1812 conquest by the British, and the mobility revolution unleashed by Henry Ford. But there was also the little known reality of slavery, race riots in 1863 and 1943, and array of unlikely friendships, assorted scoundrels, and ingenious entrepreneurs.

This presentation will highlight these and other antidotes included in Paul Vachon’s new book, Detroit: An Illustrated Timeline.

This presentation will be presented virtually on Zoom. When you register, please provide an email address and we will send you the information you need to join the presentation.
