Historian Thomas Sugrue, a Detroit native and professor at New York University is author of The Origins of the Urban Crisis, first published in 1996, looking at issues of race and inequality in Detroit after World War II.

Sugrue’s award-winning work has been recognized for helping define the ways Detroit has become what it is today, now fifty years after the 1967 uprising.

This week at the Detroit Historical Museum, Sugrue talked with Keith Owens of the Michigan Chronicle and Detroit Journalism Cooperative about Detroit’s recent history leading up to 1967 through to today.
