Black Bottom Street View's mission is to visualize Detroit's historic Black Bottom neighborhood, to build a platform for sharing family and community histories, and to promote the legacy of Black Bottom and the impact its residents have had on the city of Detroit and the whole of contemporary culture.

We hope that Black Bottom Street View will help to make its history more visible for all of us—and that a better understanding of this history will teach us something about the current forms of displacement that are shaping Detroit today.

The purpose of this project is to become a tool and a resource for Detroiters. Please contact us with comments, questions, feedback, and criticism—and please reach out if you're interested in getting involved.
