In Living Detroit, Brandon M. Ward argues that environmentalism in postwar Detroit responded to anxieties over the urban crisis, deindustrialization, and the fate of the city. Tying the diverse stories of environmental activism and politics together is the shared assumption environmental activism could improve their quality of life. Detroit, Michigan, was once the capital of industrial prosperity and the beacon of the American Dream. It has since endured decades of deindustrialization, population loss, and physical decay – in short, it has become the poster child for the urban crisis. This is not a place in which one would expect to discover a history of vibrant expressions of environmentalism; however, in the post-World War II era, while suburban, middle-class homeowners organized into a potent force to protect the natural settings of their communities, in the working-class industrial cities and in the inner city, Detroiters were equally driven by the impulse to conserve their neighborhoods and create a more livable city, pushing back against the forces of deindustrialization and urban crisis. Living Detroit juxtaposes two vibrant and growing fields of American history which often talk past each other: environmentalism and the urban crisis. By putting the two subjects into conversation, we gain a richer understanding of the development of environmental activism and politics after World War II and its relationship to the crisis of America’s cities. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars in environmental, urban, and labor history.

This book is full of true stories about performing artists at Living Arts, a small nonprofit in Detroit, Michigan, who formed a national affiliate of the Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning through the Arts. That’s the early childhood outreach of the Wolf Trap Foundation, which is part of the world-renowned Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts. In Detroit, this team of artists—dancers, actors, musicians, storytellers, puppeteers and more—developed training experiences with Wolf Trap’s guidance. Now, these teaching artists are bringing lessons to children aged 3 months to 5 years, many of them in low-income neighborhoods with few other opportunities to experience the arts. The Wolf Trap teaching artists also are training classroom teachers and opening doors for family involvement workshops as well. The stories in this book capture the excitement of those interactions. As you will learn in these pages, research is stacking up to demonstrate the dramatic contribution arts education can make in early childhood development—as well as specific skills in STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) subjects. In these pages, you will meet all 12 of the 2016 teaching artists at Living Arts’ Detroit Wolf Trap affiliate. Each tells an inspiring—and often surprising—story about interactions with children and adults. By the end of the book, readers will have learned lots of creative ideas from these professionals. Readers also are left with further opportunities. The book includes videos of the artists at work, tips for establishing or expanding your own nonprofit and ways to connect with this Wolf Trap program. The book is intended for individual reading or group discussion with friends, parents, educators and community leaders anywhere across the U.S.
