Week 8 – Detroit Community-Engaged Research Program

Week 8

My favorite group events were the two Jamon Jordan tours we took as a group. I really enjoyed hearing about the gentrification of Detroit from his voice. It’s one thing to learn about history from a book or a classroom, but entirely different to hear it while touring the sites being taught. I appreciated how thorough and thoughtful his commentary was at each stop on the tour– even though the tours didn’t have a lot of stops, each stop was explained in great detail. I came away from every tour feeling like I had learned a lot while being thoroughly engrossed and entertained.
