DCERP Showcase – UROP Symposium

DCERP Showcase

The 2021 Showcase Theme: Lift Every Voice: Breaking Barriers Beyond the ‘7.2’ is a reference to the hymn/Black National Anthem “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” written by James Weldon Johnson and set to music by J. Rosamond Johnson in 1900.  It also references the 7.2 square miles in downtown Detroit that are undergoing an accelerated rate of gentrification while neighborhoods beyond that radius remain overlooked and underserved.
