Wayne State University Oral History Course 2014 Oral Histories
Scope and Content
Most of the interviews in this collection include a completed transcript, whereas the Mary Luevanos, Myrna Segura, and Donele Wilkins transcripts contain only the first hour of interview audio transcribed. The 16 interviews can be broken into four categories: Southwest Detroit, Michigan Environmental Justice, Economic Development in Detroit and Policing Detroit. The Southwest Detroit interviews include Cynthia Elizabeth Casillas, Gloria Rocha, Jane C. Garcia, Mary Luevanos, and Myrna Segura. The Michigan Environmental Justice interviews include Anna Holden, Carol Izant, Thomas Stephens, and Donele Wilkins. The Economic Development in Detroit interviews include David Blaszkiewicz, Glenn Lapin, and Carol Schroeder. The Policing Detroit interviews include Matthew Zani, Cary Glazer, and Anthony Holt. The final interview of Thomas Brunk, an architectural historian who has spent much of his life studying Charles Lang Freer, does not cleanly fit into any of the above categories.
