Hastings Street Blues: The economic roots that contributed to Detroit's worst summer - Crain's Detroit Business

Monday, June 19, 2017

They were loose in general."Still, what's clear is that the two areas were vibrant, bustling with activity.Joe Louis co-owned a restaurant, the Brown Bomber's Chicken Shack, with Sunnie Wilson on East Vernor (it reportedly lost the legendary boxer $40,000, according to LIFE magazine).Charles Diggs, later the state's first black stat...

To address the inequity, in 1925, Diggs, a one-time follower of Marcus Garvey’s Universal Negro Improvement Association, and other prominent blacks co-founded Detroit Mem...
