MCHR Board Member and long-time Detroit civil rights activist Member Dorothy Dewberry Aldridge and her husband Dan Aldridge (also a well known Detroit civil rights activist) were recently interviewed as part of a documentary entitled “Spirit of Detroit: Fulfilling the Dream.” The documentary, which was produced by Detroit’s NBC affiliate WDIV, examined the history of the civil rights movement in the U.S. with a Detroit perspective.
Since the public murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer on May 25, 2020 there have been large public demonstrations protesting police brutality against African Americans in 2000 cities and towns in the U.S. and around the world.
The protests have led to numerous legislative proposals at federal, state and municipal levels intended to combat police misconduct, sytemic racism and police brutality in the United States.
