Hamtramck Housing

NPR's Cheryl Corley reports that decades after a federal judge ordered it, new houses are about to built for black residents who lost their homes in an ethnic enclave next to Detroit. The few African-Americans in Hamtramck, Mich., in the 1960s successfully claimed in court that urban renewal targeted their homes for destruction and withheld relocation help.
