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

Monday, June 19, 2017

Seebaldt Street near Grand River and Tireman.)A pair of small black-owned hotels, the Norwood and the Biltmore, each with about 30-40 rooms, were in Paradise Valley. Ed Davis, who in 1963 became the first African American to get a Big Three auto dealership from Chrysler-Plymouth, had a Studebaker Corp. dealership at Vernor and Brush.There were also doctors, lawyers, real estate brokers, drug stores, restaurants, numbers-running operations and even a candy shop. During the Prohibition Era, Paradise Valley also had speakeasies, becoming "a place where you can go into a saloon and drink whiskey out of a Dixie cup," Coleman said.Some, like John Roxborough, Louis' co-manager and a numbers-runner, began to accumulate substantial wealth."He was certainly thought to be a millionaire," Coleman said.Others saw success in Paradise Valley, too."For the first time, African Americans became either managers or owners of some of these places."More than 300 businesses in Paradise Valley in all, and well over 100,000 residents in Black Bottom, living in increasingly cramped quarters as racially-based housing restrictions kept them in the neighborhood."Because of restricted covenant deeds, it (Black Bottom) was very, very dense," Coleman said."Some of those second-floor residential living quarters, on top of bars and restaurants and bakeries, where an owner might put a wall partion up in a bedroom and make it two bedrooms, or take the living room and slice that in half, until you get a couple different families living in the same 400 or 500 square feet, or probably even less."...
