The Detroit Historical Society provides meaningful experiences that share the city’s history with all its community members. The Society operates the Detroit Historical Museum in the city’s midtown and the Dossin Great Lakes Museum on Belle Isle Park. In 2015, the Society launched a multi-year community engagement project to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the civil unrest of July 1967.
The project promotes a fuller understanding of Detroit’s struggles with race – both past and present – and provides opportunities for understanding, communication and dialogue. Key project deliverables include an oral history project, a comprehensive exhibition, and public programs developed with community partners.
