Detroit & The American City Symposium Photo Gallery


As part of Kresge’s 100th anniversary – celebrated on June 11, the exact day of the foundation’s launch by Sebastian S. Kresge – the Detroit & the American Cities Symposium brought together several hundred people from Detroit, Fresno, Memphis and New Orleans. The discussions looked to the past traumas of Detroit and cities like it, then looked to a future on the basis of equity. One of the topics was finding joy – and from the opening blasts of the Cass Tech Marching Band through to the final applause, the event had the look of success.
