      'Black Detroit' author Herb Boyd is coming back to city for book signing event

      Detroit Free Press staffPublished 6:01 p.m. ET June 25, 2017

      Herb Boyd, awarding-winning author, journalist and historian — and Wayne State University graduate — is making a second visit home to Detroit to discuss and sign his new book "Black Detroit: A People’s History of Self-Determination," (Amistad).

      Detroit Free Press columnist Rochelle Riley will host "A Conversation With Herb Boyd" at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 20 at the Northwest Activities Center, 18100 Meyers Road in Detroit. They will discuss Boyd's book — a thorough, chronological, stunningly detailed look at Detroit’s incarnation and development through the eyes of those ignored, marginalized or unheralded because of color. Boyd will sign copies after the conversation.

      Boyd, who teaches in the Black Studies Department at City College of New York, will return again for the Women's Informal Network's 25th anniversary celebration called "Men Who Count" on Friday, October 27 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. For more information, contact Pat Cole at [email protected].
