A new sculpture titled “United We Stand” kicked off the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History‘s year-long commemoration of 1967 civil unrest in Detroit. The piece was created by 91-year-old artist Charles McGee. Museum President and C-E-O Juanita Moore says the sculpture reminds Detroiters that if they stick together, they can accomplish anything. Moore spoke with WDET’s Bre’Anna Tinsley.
