Description: Here in Detroit, Michigan, on a West Side corner and during the 1950s, many notable African Americans, to include Berry Gordy, founder of Hitsville USA Motown and Smokey Robinson of The Miracles, were factually linked directly to this neighborhood before initiating their illustrious careers. Progress erupted enormously after WW II for people to enrich themselves culturally, academically, and luxuriously. In essence this meant privileges for the majority and restrictions for the minority. Thus, this Negro minority, the great influx from the South to the Industrial North for jobs in the related factories due to the war effort transpired, and most were uneducated. Mounting suppressions, as in a bubble ready to burst, created tensions and further cultivated frustrations. Alcohol and drugs were available and prevalent catalytic factors, gambling a desire to achieve a touch of luxury. All these were a desire to escape, to achieve a purpose. Something "had to give" as the tensions in the "bubble" expanded and finally burst. The Detroit Riots of 1967.
