On the next American Black Journal
Community input is being sought on the placement and content for a Michigan Historical Marker in Detroit’s former Black Bottom neighborhood. The area was home to several African-American businesses, social institutions and nightclubs until it was demolished to make way for the Chrysler Freeway and Lafayette Park in the early 1960s. Plus, a Detroit-based filmmaker‘s short film about bullying, titled “Junior,” has gone viral and earned an award for its young lead actor from Detroit.
