This mini-course is designed as a collaborative community learning experience in which students will explore the history, culture, and contemporary social dynamics of Detroit through a direct engagement with Detroit scholars, activists, and residents. Our focus and theme for the semester will be exploring competing ideas about "development" and visions for Detroit's future in the context of the 50th anniversary of the Report of the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders, commonly referred to as the Kerner Report, which was released in March 1968. Each week will feature different speakers and guests who will explore the given topic and engage the students through a combination of formal remarks, presentations, and public discussion. Brief required readings from a range of sources will provide students with an introduction to the specific topic under discussion and help them to pose thoughtful questions to be posted before each class session or posed during the discussion.

1) Transportation will be provided to/from Detroit. Students should meet at the Central Campus Transit Center at 5:30pm each week of the class; they will be returned to the CCTC around 10pm after traveling back from Detroit.

2) This course is held at the Cass Corridor Commons, located at 4605 Cass Ave. A light dinner is included each week as these are public events.

3) The course dates are: Feb 6, Feb 13, Feb 20, Mar 6, Mar 20, Mar 27, Apr 3, Apr 10
