The geography of race and class in metropolitan Detroit is rapidly changing. Black families are migrating to once white suburbs, while incentives draw young professionals to the majority-minority city. How are investment patterns affecting racial transition? How are communities responding to demographic changes across the region? Is this a departure from longstanding segregation and inequality, or the same injustices in a new guise? This panel will bring together a diverse group of local leaders to address how the Detroit region might overcome its legacy of separate and unequal societies to fulfill King's vision of a "beloved community."
