Requiem for Detroit, Part 2

We are posting a series of interesting videos from a documentary called Requiem of Detroit in order to help us understand & reach the people of Detroit with the good news of Jesus.

It has been said that Detroit is one of the most racially charged cities in America. Part 2 helps explain why this may be so. In some cases almost entire southern towns moved to Detroit to work on the assembly lines. Instead of assimilation, separate communities were formed, a kind of “virtual apartheid.” This video also explains why in Detroit you have the unusual dynamic of small cities like Highland Park & Hamtramck (I played baseball there as a kid) inside Detroit.

Galatians 3:27-28  For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
