In the 1960’s, thousands of people in Lansing lost their homes. Interstate 496 was built through the middle of the city’s historically African-American neighborhood. The mass displacement of families altered many facets of life, including education.
Editor's Note: The "I-496 Intersects Education" event will be held Saturday, July 27 at the Educational Child Care Center at 1715 W. Malcolm X Blvd. in Lansing. It runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
