About Detroit, MI

The City of Detroit is the largest and most-populous city in the state of Michigan. It anchors the second largest regional economy in the Midwest (behind Chicago). The city has a very diverse culture and a rich history. The CHASS Center is located in the Mexicantown neighborhood of Southwest Detroit. Detroit's Mexican population began settling in the area in the 1920s, and waves of immigration came in the 1970s and 1980s, adding to the community. In the late 1980s, the neighborhood was christened "Mexicantown" as part of a public relations campaign. Mexicantown is a thriving community, whose population demographics are 50% Hispanic, 25% are African American, 20% non-Hispanic white and 5% Arab American, according to the Southwest Detroit Business Association. Despite its name, the neighborhood's Hispanic community is not exclusively Mexican, and has a significant number of Puerto Ricans and other Hispanics as well, although over half of the Hispanics in the area are of Mexican origin.
