      The Black Church & Black Power in Detroit

      The foundation of the African American community in Detroit is the Black Church. And the Black Church helped to start the first Black schools, the first Black businesses, the first Black civic organizations.  Those community institutions led Detroit's African Americans down the road to seek civil rights, human rights and Black Power.  Please join historian Jamon Jordan as he leads a tour inside of the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, and learn about how religious institutions like Second Baptist Church, the Nation of Islam and the Shrine of the Black Madonna were founded in Detroit and linked spirituality with progress for Black people.  Learn how the uprising in 1967 was a rebellion, and not simply a riot. Learn how the election of Coleman A. Young saved the city, and moved Black people in Detroit forward.  PRICES: $15 per adult (16 and above); $12 for Museum Members $10 per student (9-15); $8 for Museum Members. YOUTH (8 & under) are FREE Payment for this TOUR does NOT include entry into the museum.
