1928 · The Detroit Zoo

Age 5

The Detroit Zoological Society was founded in 1911, but the zoo didn't officially open until August 1, 1928. At the opening ceremony, Mayor John C. Nagel was to speak to the gathered crowd. Arriving late, Nagel parked his car behind the bear dens and as he came rushing around the front. A polar bear leaped from the moat in the den and stood directly in front of Nagel. Unaware how precarious his situation was, Nagel stuck out his hand and walked toward the polar bear joking, ""He's the reception committee. The Detroit Zoo was the first zoo in America with cage-less exhibits and the first zoo to no longer keep elephants because of the harsh winters causing psychological stress on them.
1943 · The Detroit Race Riots

Age 20

The 1943 Detroit Race Riot started on the evening of June 20 and lasted through June 22. It occurred in a period of dramatic social tensions associated with the military buildup of World War II, as Detroit's automotive industry was converted to the war effort. What fueled the fire the most was the arrival of nearly 400,000 migrants, both African-American and White Southerners, and the competition for space and jobs. It was suppressed after 6,000 federal troops were ordered into the city to restore peace. A total of 34 people were killed, 25 of them African-Americans and most at the hands of white police or National Guardsmen; 433 were wounded, 75 percent of them African-American.
