Not just a Book – Detroit Community-Engaged Research Program

Not just a Book

Reading “The Origins of the Urban Crisis” was extremely helpful with being part of DCBRP.  The book covers vital/relevant topics that has influenced the city of Detroit to this day.

I think reading the book aids in understanding why certain parts of Detroit are suffering: the 1943 Race Riots, White flight, housing, the 1967 Rebellion, and the recession.  As a DCBRP fellow you are placed at a nonprofit which seeks to find sustainable solutions for the City of Detroit, and having this book to understand the history of such a beautiful city, is helpful.
