The Detroit Historical Society will launch its Past>Forward campaign at a media event on July 20. Society representatives will provide details of the campaign, along with information on the changes taking place at the Detroit Historical Museum and Dossin Great Lakes Museum.

Several Detroit legends will be on hand to preserve their handprints and signatures in cement to establish the city’s first Detroit Legends Plaza, an outdoor tribute to some of Detroit’s top athletes, broadcasters, writers, entertainers and more.

Detroit legends Al Kaline, Dick Purtan, Elmore Leonard, Carmen Harlan and Mayor Dave Bing will preserve their handprints and signatures in cement during the news conference.

This sounds very cool! I think the history of this city needs to be told and celebrated. As a side note I think Count Scary should be included in the media event.
