Map: Reuther Library compiles 1967 reports to Mayor Cavanagh


Detroit’s museums have all pulled together incredible time capsules and commentaries on the events on the Summer of 1967.

The Reuther Library has an excellent archival exhibit in their lobby that is accompanied by a web exhibit with related archival materials. This map in particular was created based on letters and calls made to Mayor Cavanagh’s office during the period of unrest in 1967. All of these incidents were unconfirmed reports made by members of the Detroit Commission on Community Relations.
