A documentary on Detroit's decline (Posted on 2/25/13 at 8:01 am)
I have Directv, and caught this last night on the DOC (documentary) channel.
Very well done, IMO. Documentary began talking about Detroit's glorious times, and ended discussing all of the problems occurring today. I'm sorry I fell asleep for the last 15-20 minutes of it.
Really good information regarding the 1967 Detroit riot, "white flight," and how the true downfall of the city began when Coleman Young became mayor (stayed mayor for 20 years). It is really remarkable and sad the amount of corruption from the recent mayors of the city, starting with Coleman Young while including recent mayors like Kwame Kilpatrick.
Hope some people here can find that on the tube in the near future. It should appeal to all people regardless of political affiliation.
