Racial Housing Patterns in Detroit in 1925
(From David Allan Levine's Internal Combustion: The Races in Detroit 1925-26, Greenwood Press 1976)

"The Negro problem presents one different in every respect from that of any racial group, for in Detroit it is impossible for a Negro man or woman to secure decent quarters for self or family.  His presence as a resident is not tolerated in many sections of the city.  He is compelled to live in slum districts."  --Americanization Committee (The Detroiter, Dec. 15, 1919)
