Remembering A Racist Wall’s Past: Detroit’s Birwood Wall Receives Michigan Historical Marker 

A Michigan historical marker has been installed at the site of the Birwood Wall, which at one time stood as a symbol of racism and housing segregation in Detroit, in the Eight Mile-Wyoming neighborhood. Known also as the Wailing Wall or the Eight Mile wall, for its location, the wall was erected in 1941 by a real estate developer in an effort to separate his housing development for white residents from the adjacent African American neighborhood nearby.

By the 1950’s, Black families lived on both sides of the Birwood wall. The wall has since been painted to symbolize the resilience and resolve of African Americans in the area. One Detroit senior producer Bill Kubota and contributing producer Daijah Moss visited the unveiling of the Birwood Wall historical marker to learn more about the city’s and residents’ efforts to move forward.
