Younger students can learn more about the racial and cultural history of Detroit during the 1920's at the DIA. Teachers use images of cultural diversity in the DIA to bring together art and
social studies lessons that explore the changing culture of America. This exploration includes a role-play activity as to imagine what it was like for those who immigrated to America
and migrated to the urban North. One of 6 lessons from the DIA's Grades 6-8.
