Detroit : race riots, racial conflicts, and efforts to bridge the racial divide by Joe T Darden( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Episodes of racial conflict in Detroit form just one facet of the city's storied and legendary history, and they have sometimes overshadowed the less widely known but equally important occurrence of interracial cooperation in seeking solutions to the city's problems. The conflicts also present many opportunities to analyze, learn from, and interrogate the past in order to help lay the groundwork for a stronger, more equitable future. This astute and prudent history poses a number of critical questions: Why and where have race riots occurred in Detroit? How has the racial climate changed or remained the same since the riots? What efforts have occurred since the riots to reduce racial inequality and conflicts, and to build bridges across racial divides? Unique among books on the subject, Detroit pays special attention to post-1967 social and political developments in the city, and expands upon the much-explored black - white dynamic to address the influx of more recent populations to Detroit: Middle Eastern Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans. Crucially, the book explores the role of place of residence, spatial mobility, and spatial inequality as key factors in determining access to opportunities such as housing, education, employment, and other amenities, both in the suburbs and in the city.--Publisher's description
The state of Black Michigan, 1967-2007( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Product Description: During the summer of 1967, race riots swept across U.S. cities. Detroit was the scene of one of the worst of these. "The State of Black Michigan" is a landmark volume that investigates how, since 1967, Michigan's black population has changed, how its interactions with the white community have altered, and, most important, how policymakers can act to further narrow the "equality gap" that continues to persist. In the wake of the 1967 Detroit riots, in which 43 people were killed, President Lyndon Johnson established the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders and posed these questions: What happened? Why did it happen? What can be done to prevent it from happening again? The commission concluded that white racism spurred the violence and that "our society is moving toward two societies, one black, and one white-separate and unequal."The State of Black Michigan" takes Johnson's questions further and applies them to Michigan's black citizens today: Are the ingredients of the explosive mixture that erupted in 1967 still present? What differences are there forty years later? Is Michigan in fact a state with two separate and unequal societies? The twenty essays in this volume pursue the answers to these questions by studying a broad range of topics, including socioeconomic inequality, black self-help, black business development, residential segregation, crime, health, and political representation. The essays report and reflect on the racial disparities that still remain. "The State of Black Michigan, 1967-2007" uses the most recent data available and expands on reports the editors published annually between 1984 and 1993 with the Urban Affairs Programs at Michigan State University and the Michigan Council of Urban League Executives. With the goal of racial equality still frustratingly elusive, and with reliable data often difficult to obtain, it is hoped that The "State of Black Michigan" will serve as a magnet for conversation and debate about race, inequality, and the need for action

The Residential Segregation of Blacks in Flint [Michigan], 1950-1970. Revised by Joe T Darden( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study presents quantitative evidence that the inability of blacks to pay for housing in white residential areas in Flint, Michigan is not the major cause of black residential segregation. The following questions are asked: (1) Has black residential segregation in Flint remained at a high level from 1950 to 1970? (2) Has the trend in black residential segregation in Flint been one of continuous increase through time? (3) What census tracts have been the most segregated? (4) What types of racial change have occurred? And (5) How much black residential segregation can be explained by housing costs inequality? In this study a high level of segregation is arbitrarily defined as a racial population change index above 50 percent. That is, Flint has a high level of segregation if more than half of its population of either race would have to change residence to make it zero percent segregated, or non-segregated. Comparison of spatial distributions of blacks and whites show that a high level of black residential segregation existed in Flint from 1950 to 1970--above 50 percent; there were actual decreases in the level of black residential segregation over the 20 year period; and there have been decreases in certain areas of Flint and increases in others. Correlation and regression analysis demonstrated that 26 percent of the black residential segregation that existed could be explained by housing cost inequality between blacks and whites in 1950; 7 percent in 1960; and 3 percent in 1970.
