1971 map showing central Detroit produced in cooperation with Wayne State University and the Detroit Public Schools Trainers of Teacher Trainers (TTT) Triple T Project. It’s important to note that the map blocks indicate areas by ethnicity only if that ethnicity is “50% or more of area population.”
The infamous Dodge Hamtramck where the first wild-cat strikes that led to the formation of the Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement (DRUM) is located near the left edge of the central Polish area that is bordered by the African-American area. UAW’s Solidarity House headquarters are on banks of the river in the African American area and Mixed area. Wayne State University where The South End was published and edited by DRUM advocate John Watson would be located in the central Non-Residential blank area in the central part of the map, surrounded by predominately African-American areas.
