Detroit Historical Society (Detroit, MI 48202-4097)
Tracy Irwin (Project Director: January 2020 to present)
Boom Town: Detroit in the 1920s Exhibition at the Detroit Historical Museum

Implementation of a single-site, temporary exhibition exploring Detroit in the 1920s through the life stories of twenty diverse inhabitants.

The Detroit Historical Society will install a new temporary exhibition at the Detroit Historical Museum entitled Boom Town: Detroit in the 1920s that explores that important and dynamic decade, and brings to life the social justice and civic rights issues of the era such as women’s suffrage, African American rights, growth of anti-immigration factions among others that both illustrate the position of Detroit and the nation in the last century, while also offering context for conditions today.
