DETROIT, MI/ AUG. 31 – SEPT. 2 8:45 AM to 4:00 PM / COVID-19 Memorial Processions
Fifteen staggered funeral processions will be taking place Monday down Chene and east on Jefferson to Belle Isle. Families of the 900+ victims of COVID-19 may attend Monday. The memorial is open to all others Tuesday and Wednesday.
Avoid staging area on Atwater Street across from the Aretha Franklin Amphitheatre and procession down Chene and east on Jefferson to Belle Isle.
Potential flash point with a reported disproportionate 40% of Michigan deaths comprised of Black citizens. Especially with Gov. Whitmer talking about the glaring inequities of race at a memorial service.
