This chapter discusses the period of settlement and the emergence of activism by black Detroiters in the early 1920s. During this period, black Detroiters laid the foundation for the infrastructures of religious, civil, and political organizations. By 1923, African Americans were involved in municipal politics, campaigning for candidates and making their voices heard and their votes count. Black Detroiters came of age politically with their support for Frank Murphy and participation in campaigns against the Ku Klux Klan.

Keywords:   activism, black Detroiters, 1920, religious organizations, civil organizations, African Americans, Frank Murphy, Ku Klux Klan
