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

Monday, June 19, 2017

Detroit historian Ken Coleman. His book, Million Dollars Worth of Nerve, profiles the power-players of Paradise Valley and Black Bottom, a residential neighborhood that existed generally where Lafayette Park is now, bounded by Gratiot Avenue to the north, Congress to the south, the Grand Trunk Railroad (the present day Dequindre Cut) to the east and Brush Street to the west.Exactly where the neighborhoods started and ended is up for debate, Coleman said."It's not like these communities were codified in boundaries at City Hall. 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 state senator, was a leading funeral home owner there, as was James Cole, whose funeral home business survives to this day. (Two months ago, the funeral home provided services for Orsel McGhee, who along with his wife, Minnie, were part of a landmark court case in 1948 that helped ban restrictive covenant deeds nationwide following an attempt to remove them from their house on Seebaldt Street near Grand River and Tireman.)A pair of small black-owned hotels,...

He graduated over 1,000 students, and as an FAA flight examiner and beginning in 1987, he administered a United States’ record 10,379 check ride flights.His personal logbook documents 38,971 actual flight hours with ratings as an airline transport pilot, single and multi-engine instrument instructor and Cessna Citation jet.Mr. Shelton actually had two careers. A charter member of NASA, the Marshall Space Flight Center, he and his colleagues made aerospace history during our nation’s space race. He was there from the beginning working with Dr. Werner Von Braun on all the launch vehicles from the Redstone Rocket to the Saturn V Moon Rocket, finishing after 38 years with the Shuttle program in 1993.The patriarch of three generations of pilots, Clyde instructed his wife, Sara, in 1966; his son, Scott, now a Boeing 747 captain for Delta Airlines on his 16th birthday; and his grandson, Nevada, currently a captain in the United States Army flying the Blackhawk helicopter on his 16th birthday, as well.Clyde Shelton’s legacy is firmly established in those lives he touched. He was a genuine aviation professional. He was a man whose integrity, character, food nature and sincere interest in his students defined him as a man of competent humility.For his extraordinary and endearing contributions to aviation, Mr. Shelton was elected in...
