Map: New Detroit – A Decade of Progress 1967-1977


This is a map comes from the report by New Detroit Inc.: a decade of progress 1967-1977. The map displays all of their partners, beneficiaries, and efforts since 1967. It shows their widespread impact (and the Detroit northwesternly pattern) as well as map design flaws that might obscure the organizations full impact.

The report was broken down into core categories:

  • Public Safety and Justice
  • Minority Economic Development
  • Health and Action Against Drug Abuse

The final page of the report shows pictures of their presidents and chairmen over the last 10 years, with only one African-American member.
