The Decline of Detroit in Five Maps

The Decline of Detroit in Five Maps | Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies | Scoop.it

"Detroit was once the nation’s fourth most-populous city. Today, it became the largest American city to file for bankruptcy."

 

"And no discussion of Detroit is complete without mention of race and segregation. In 1950, when Detroit's population was at its peak, the city was 82 percent white.

Questions to Ponder: Why and how are the cultural patterns connected to the economic shifts in Detroit?  Why are the suburbs growing while parts of the central city are declining?

Jay Ratcliff's comment, August 8, 2013 7:38 AM
I did not think that they showed the time aspect very clearly. I would have like to see more data from 1950 or any data before 2005. The article talks about the decline from the 50's but does not show much from that time period.
