Detroit on My Mind - Conversation with James Boggs

I will be posting several reflections on Detroit. Many of them will highlight some of the long time activists and organizers in Detroit.

I dedicate these posts to my father who worked at Ford Motor Company beginning in 1946 until he was forced to retire due to heart problems in the 1970s. To my knowledge he never a missed a day of work and was a loyal worker who if he thought about rebelling and doing something else the faces of his ten children were a constant reminder that he had made some decisions that were irreversible.

To him and all the Black men that toiled first in southern fields and then migrated north to the factories for a better life!
Blessed Be! Rev. Qiyamah
