  • March 6, 2015

You have to love these old videos uploaded to YouTube. This one shows downtown Detroit in April of 1964. For a little historical context, Malcolm X visited the city that month to deliver his speech “The Ballot or the Bullet,” the Ford Mustang was officially introduced, the Rolling Stones released their debut album, the Vasa is raised from the bottom of Stockholm harbor after 346 years, and Shea Stadium opened in New York for the Mets.
