Detroit During World War II

Learn about Detroit during World War II from Karen AJ Miller, History Professor at Oakland University on Tuesday, March 6 at 7 p.m. at the Rochester Hills Public Library. During World War II, Detroit experienced unprecedented growth.  As demand for housing and other resources exploded, war-time restrictions on materials slowed the construction of new homes and schools. Professor Miller will discuss how this created a social crisis as too many workers fought over too few houses. The result was tension that often erupted into political violence
