Jamon Jordan, founder of the Black Scroll Network History & Tours, will lead a historical and educational tour to learn about the causes of the 1967 uprising, and the discriminatory policies and practices that were part of our region's history.

The 2 1/2-hour tour, departs from the Detroit Experience Factory. It will include stops at Gordon Park, which now occupies the corner of Rosa Parks Boulevard (12th Street) and Clairmount, as well as the Birwood Wall, erected on Detroit’s Birwood Street in the 1940s to create a barrier between black and white residents.
It will return to the Detroit Experience Factory at the end of the tour. Tickets for the tour are $10.

The tour is being held as part of the events around the film «12th and Clairmount,» which explores the causes and aftermath of the 1967 uprising in Detroit.

It s presented by the Freep Film Festival and Bridge Magazine and made possible thanks to generous support by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation Fund of the Community Foundation.
