Emory Place Block Party

BY WHITNEY MANAHAN
@ VOL 16 ON AUG 06, 2015

As an architect I'm a proponent for saving historic buildings and I constantly see potential in unique and underutilized spaces. There are areas of town which may have both but sometimes need that "something more." After living near Emory Place for 3 years I decided the "something more" it needed was a stronger connection and community and more activity in general. This isn't an issue that is solved by renovations alone. This is where a group of like-minded people came together to make that "something more" a reality. This is how the Emory Place Block Party came to be.

BY JOHN MILROY

John Milroy is from the Detroit area and Motown is one of his favorite subjects. In this talk he tours the Motor City's rich history via Woodlawn Cemetary - the final resting place of many famous music legends who resided nearby.

"If the grey stones of these fences could talk, or more accurately, sing, they would tell the story of Detroit through the rise and fall of the civil rights movement, through the halcyon days of Motown."
