African American History: Detroit Motown Museum and Charles H. Wright Museum Visit (October 3rd)
As a follow-up to our lecture series on the African-American experience, join OLLI for a docent-led tour of the Motown Museum and a visit to the Charles H. Wright African American Museum, including a docent-led tour of the main exhibit, “And Still We Rise," or a self-guided tour of the current indoor/outdoor exhibit "Say It Loud: Art, History, Rebellion" observing the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Detroit Rebellion. Between museum visits, we will take a bus tour of the old Hastings Street neighborhood, Lafayette Park, and Black Bottom, emphasizing insights into neighborhood decline and impact of expressways on communities, and eat a buffet soul food lunch at Bert’s Market Place, including a brief presentation + Q/A about the era of Jazz and Motown music, civil rights. We will have time to view the historical murals located inside Bert’s jazz club. A release form is required for this trip and will be mailed out to registrants by the OLLI office.
