Detroit’s Birthday Celebrations, Public Statues & Detroit’s Future

Wednesday, April 12, 2023 | 11:00am - 12:00pm

Robert Sullivan - Local Historian 

Mr. Sullivan will examine Detroit’s birthday celebrations, commemorating its founding in 1701 (centennials, etc.), focusing on 1901, 1951 and 2001. He will also discuss some of Detroit’s outdoor public statues, such as Marshall Frederick's "Spirit of Detroit," Rodin's "The Thinker," the General Alpheus Williams equestrian statue on Belle Isle, and many more. Finally, we will discuss the future of Detroit. Will it solve its problems of crime, poverty, blight and education? Will it attract more business development? Will the dream of MLK guide Detroit's future? Generously sponsored by Baldwin House Birmingham.
