Driving Detroit

Driving Detroit

This week, Wayne State University’s George Galster is presenting his new book, Driving Detroit: The Quest for Respect in the Motor City. In an era when seemingly everybody wants to comment on Detroit, we’d all do well to listen to this urban affairs professor break down the forces at work in our region and what they produce. Expect Galster to break down our region’s distrust, scapegoating, identity politics, segregation and jurisdictional fragmentation, as well as housing policies that produce unsustainable sprawl in the boonies and abandonment in the city. But if you’re primed for a night of dry didactics, you’ll be disappointed, because Driving Detroit allows Detroiters to use songs, poems and oral histories to create their own self-portrait too.
