It deals with the true intertwining stories of Detroit's athletic successes - the Tigers, Lions, Red Wings, and Joe Louis - and the rise and fall of a murderous secret society. The Black Legion, a terrorist hate group, has largely been forgotten but is estimated to have murdered nearly 50 individuals in southeast Michigan. Stanton, an associate professor at University of Detroit Mercy, will include photos in his presentations.
