"There has always been good in the neighborhood" - Anon.
In a small corner of Detroit evolves a history and a talent so immense that it cannot be described until you have been there. The annual 8 mile reunion is held every 2nd August on the grounds that served as a mustering grounds for African American troops in Civil War.
The base line road (8 mile) served as a marker for Lewis and Clark expedition to map the United States long before GPS was in the picture.
Later on in life it served as a
National Guard base. The infamous wall
of segregation is nearby when the neighborhood was transitioning from
predominantly Jewish to Black.
