Scope & Content 16mm color workprint with synchronized magnetic audio from the Sue Marx production, "This Is My Home, This Is Detroit," containing footage of an interview with Mayor Coleman A. Young shot in the Manoogian Mansion. Young discusses growing up in Detroit's Black Bottom neighborhood. He lists the schools he attended as a child, and reminisces about the scents of Eastern Market, barbecuing, and horses, and about the sounds of automobiles, and the blues. He is also asked to define "neighborhood." He talks about the Elmwood Four area's developments and residents and compares it to historic Black Bottom. Young discusses cultural, racial, and ethnic diversity in Detroit, the warmth and charitable engagement of Detroiters, and the challenges the city has faced. The clapboard and the rolls are labeled November 27, 1985.
