The 19th annual David Noble Lecture, presented by the U of M American Studies Department, features Tiya Miles, professor at the University of Michigan and recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship “genius grant.” Through a reconstruction of early Detroit in the first American decades with a focus on the role of slavery, this presentation considers whether understanding Detroit then can help to shape visionary thinking and action for Detroit now. The event is part of the “Black Studies and American Studies at the Crossroads Lecture Series” and is co-sponsored by the Weisman Art Museum.
