Map: Detroit Cultural Segregation 1971

This map was included in Judy Humphrey’s publication titled: “Segregation and Integration: A Geography of People in Metropolitan Detroit” and utilizes data from the “Detroit Area Ethnic Groups” map from 1971.

“[…] anyone familiar with Detroit can attest to the persistence of ethnic tradition and cohesiveness. In addition to a voluminous number of ethnic organizations, clubs, churches and bars, there are ethnic -language radio hours and newspapers, and of course the specialty food shops and restaurants that give variety to the central city. The map of cultural groups (Map 5) gives spatial form to the patterns of ethnicity.”
