Detroit Mafia: The Silent Syndicate
Sunday, February 15, 2-3 pm.
Go inside the belly of the beast that is the stealthy Detroit Mafia, surviving in the shadows. Author Scott Burnstein will trace the syndicate from its meager early 20th Century roots to its rise in prominence during Prohibition and into the U.S. mob’s glory era of the 1950s and 60s, all the way through the Jimmy Hoffa disappearance in the 1970s and the bloody, drug-filled 1980s into the Family’s major racketeering bust of the 1990s and revival in the New Millennium. With rare photos of the figures and events spoken about displayed on a projector, the audience hears stories about bootlegging, labor union politics, Las Vegas and legendary local staples like Greektown, the Machus Red Fox, the Oakland Bath House, the Cream of Michigan Café, Home Juice co, the Southfield Athletic Club, the Wolverine and Hillcrest Golf Clubs, the Spaghetti Palace, Hazel Park Raceway, and much, much more. Registration requested.
