A Message from our Co-Founder

Dear Friend of Hood Research;

We are excited to invite you to participate in the 25thAnniversary Celebration dinner of Hood Research, on Sunday, July 30, 2017 at the Tompkins Manor, (14900 Windmill Pointe Dr., Grosse Pointe Park, MI 48230). The dinner provides an opportunity to gain insights, and perspectives; to learn about the ground-breaking work on behalf of a progressive, civil society; and support this work in Detroit, through Hood Research. Founders, DPD Police Commissioner, Reggie Crawford and TV Talk show Host, Theo Broughton met in 1992 at WCHB. Please visit our website www.hoodresearch.org to view our past business workshops (with Don Barden), business parades, community forms and lectures. In addition, we successfully protested the removal of the original slave ship display and the degrading billboards in our community. In 1996, Commissioner Reggie Crawford led the charge to introduce our community to this vast new phenomenon, known as the internet. Instructors teaching the Windows 95 courses included, Director Henry Teutsch and CPA Greg Frazier. Our pilot program was so successful that Wayne County Community College district expanded their computer curriculum to include the newest technology.

Our founders, are distinguished activists, and have spent the past 25 years giving their heart and soul to the cause of social justice in the city of Detroit, often at great sacrifice. They have taken Hood Research through the most controversial and high profile issues during the years of its existence, providing a clear and outspoken voice for democratic and pluralistic values. Please support Hood Research by joining us at the 25th Anniversary Celebration Dinner on Sunday, July 30, 2017. Enclosed is a Sponsorship package. Tickets are $45.00, general admission and $65.00, VIP. Thank you in advance for your participation.

Yours Truly,
Theo Broughton
