Book Description Hardcover. Condition: Fine. xii, 240 p.: map; 24 cm. Publisher's maroon cloth with gilt spine and cover titles. After the auto industry in Detroit shifted to wartime production during World War Two, workers came to the city seeking jobs, including Blacks from the southern United States. In 1941, the Detroit Housing Commission (DHC) and the federal government approved the construction of the Sojourner Truth Housing Project with 200 units for black defense workers. The author examines the protests that met the first people moving into the housing in 1942, placing the incident into the larger history of the city's history of race relations.
