Detroit's New Urban Renewal Rebecca J. Kinney & Andrew Herscher

When: Tue., March 28, 6-7:30 p.m. 2017

Please join us for a not-be-missed evening of conversation about urban “renewal,” racial capitalism, and resistance in contemporary Detroit. To mark the Detroit launch of Kinney’s Beautiful Wasteland: The Rise of Detroit as America’s Postindustrial Frontier (2016), the author will be in conversation with Andrew Herscher, member of the We the People of Detroit Community Research Collective and Detroit Resists and author of The Unreal Estate Guide to Detroit (2012). Together they will discuss the logics of racism and capitalism that have structured Detroit throughout the 20th century and into the city’s current “renewal.”
