Once in A Great City
A Detroit StoryBook - 2015
In 1963 Detroit was on top of the world. The city's leaders were among the most visionary in America; it was the American auto makers' best year; the revolution in music and politics was underway. Reuther's UAW had helped lift the middle class. The time was full of promise. Once in a Great City shows that the shadows of collapse were evident even then. Detroit at its peak was threatened by its own design. It was being abandoned by the new world. Yet so much of what Detroit gave America lasts.
