Detroit School Series

Sara Safransky, Vanderbilt University

4:15-6:00 PM
West Conference Room Rackham Graduate School (Horace H.) Map
Sara Safransky is an Assistant Professor of Human and Organizational Development at Vanderbilt University. On Friday, February 17th from 4:15 pm to 6 pm in the Rackham West Conference Room (4th floor), Safransky will share insights from two forthcoming book projects. The first focuses on the racial and environmental politics involved in redeveloping Detroit, arguing that the city’s landscape has been shaped in profound ways by racial state building and struggles for Black self-determination. The second, Detroit: A People’s Atlas (expected out 2017), offers counter-narratives of Detroit’s past, present, and future from collected oral histories, interviews, critical essays, poems, and maps that document the voices and experiences of some of the many Detroiters sidelined in discussions of the city’s future.
