Description:
 Join us for an evening of suspenseful Detroit history when RHGS hosts author Tom Stanton speaking about his recently published book - Terror in the City of Champions. In the mid-1930s, Detroit reigned as the City of Champions. Within a six-month span, the Tigers, Lions, and Red Wings won a World Series, NFL title, and Stanley Cup -- a major-sports feat achieved by no other American city before or since. This infectious excitement lifted residents out of the Depression Era doldrums. The glow over Detroit however would dimmed by a series of unsolved violent crimes conducted by the Black Legion, a secret terrorist organization. Learn how this vicious mob would be stopped in the summer of 1936. This is a free event and all ages are welcome.
