“Remembering Detroit’s Historic Black Communities
1920 to 1960s”
The Other Big Three; The Conant Gardeners, The Near EastSiders and The WestSiders each have a mission to research, record and present, from a Black perspective, the history of our three neighborhoods in the City of Detroit from the 1920s to the 1960s.
Each of these groups was organized to write a book about the neighborhood where we were educated, were nurtured and evolved. This publication trend started in the mid 1990s. This is the first event on which we have collaborated – to present an interesting and spirited Black History Program.
