This map comes from a 1926 report “The Negro in Detroit” by the Detroit Bureau of Governmental Research, Inc. The map provides an historical representation of the limited geographic footprint of Black residents as well as the Black Bottom/ Paradise Valley neighborhood. This map helps to show the base for the racial/political evolution of Detroit.
