Exploring Armenian, Bangladeshi and Vietnamese Communities in Metro DetroitJoin OLLI as we explore some unique communities in Metro Detroit. Our tour begins at the St. John Armenian Church and the Manoogian Mansion in Southfield, MI, where we will learn about the history and culture of the local Armenian community. Information about the Armenian genocide will be included. Then we will travel to Hamtramck for lunch at the Aladdin Café for a buffet of authentic Bangladeshi cuisine, a bus tour of Hamtramck and a visit to Masji-Al-Falah, the Islamic Center of North Detroit, for a presentation, tour and discussion. Our last stop will be Madison Heights, where we will visit Vietnamese shops and markets and hear from a speaker about that community.
