This map comes by way of Suzanne Smith’s book, Dancing in the Street: Motown and the Cultural Politics of Detroit and was created by the University of Wisconsin Cartographic Laboratory. There are a few problems here namely the use of “inner-city” in its true urban planning context is good, but leaves out the reality of Detroit’s inner-city in the 90s. It could be argue that in the 90s there was a broader understanding of “inner-city” and this map does little to give anyone a geographic understanding of Detroit’s “cultural politics” past or present [the 90s].
