A collaborative community classroom organized by SiD, WSU, and the General Baker Institute
For over 6 years, Semester in Detroit has organized community classroom events that are free and open to the public. In recent years, SiD has collaborated with Wayne State University's Department of African Studies, the Detroit Equity Action Lab, and the General Baker Institute to bring Detroit community members, U-M + WSU students, faculty and staff together to learn more about Detroit's past and present. The format varies from traditional panels to poetry readings to trips to jazz and cultural clubs throughout Detroit. Previous topics of discussion have focused on Education Reform to the Contemporary Labor Movement to Policing in Detroit.
