Local educator and historian Jamon Jordan will lead an engaging talk on the history of Detroit and  African American and Indigenous Peoples’ impact on the city.

Mr. Jordan will talk about the Great Migration and its impact on Detroit. The Great Migration is the time in history when many African Americans moved from the rural South to the industrial North. Mr. Jordan will focus on the decades between 1920-1970.
