The Detroit Orientation Institute (DOI) at Wayne State University engages diverse participants in immersive experiences to understand our region's past, present and future.

In 2017, the DOI Detroit Dialogue series will partner with Detroit '67: Looking Back to Move Forward to help link the efforts commemorating the civil unrest of the summer of 1967 with broader themes that still impact our region. The first Detroit Dialogue will take place on Tuesday, May 23. The event will feature key members of the team behind Detroit '67 and explore why hundreds of community partners are coming together to remember this civil unrest 50 years later.

The program will include dinner and a group dialogue facilitated by Jeri Stroupe (Detroit Revitalization Fellow at Wayne State University's Office of Economic Development). Special guests joining the discussion include:

  • Sheila Cockrel (CitizenDetroit)
  • Kalisha Davis (Detroit Historical Society)
  • Jennifer Evans (Charles H. Wright Museum)
  • Marlowe Stoudamire (Detroit Historical Society)

Date: Tuesday, May 23 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Location: Detroit Historical Museum, 5401 Woodward Ave.
Cost: $25 (dinner included)
