THE STORY:

The Wright, the world’s largest African American museum, is turning 50. As we celebrate its legacy of inspiring Detroit, we’re also preparing for a painful anniversary: the unrest of 1967, when our city became identified with distrust and disinvestment.  We will commemorate this milestone with art that can heal and strengthen. The Wright and Kresge Eminent Artist Charles McGee are creating a 40-foot outdoor sculpture entitled “United We Stand.” This work, in the heart of the Midtown cultural district, will inspire all towards greater tolerance and unity. Will you match an anonymous gift of $50,000 to make the project a reality?
