Law professor to address critical shortcomings of Detroit Future plan

The Duggan administration is touting the Detroit Future City plan as a development "bible." Wayne State University Law School Professor Peter Hammer sees it in a different light, describing it as a "deathblow... which will re-organize Detroit out of existence."

Hammer, who is director of the Damon Keith Center for Civil Rights at Wayne State University Law School will provide an alternative interpretation of the Detroit Future City Plan in a presentation at Marygrove College at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 25.

The talk and Q&A session will be conducted in the Madame Cadillac Building/Main Dining Room. Marygrove College is located at 8425 W. McNichols in Detroit. There is no admission charge and free lighted parking is available.

The event is sponsored by the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights and the Marygrove Social Justice Program.

For additional information on the event, contact Marge Sears of the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights at
