What's the answer for Michigan?
Would it help if Michigan churches started praying for the state legislature and legislators?

The Library of Congress and an oral history of the auto industry in Michigan

I hope my kids watch this video in the Detroit News about the closing of the Pontiac General Assembly Plant where thousands and thousands of vehicles were assembled.  In the video, workers and their sons and daughters describe what went on there and how it affected their families. 

The video and the first person column describes a project being discussed by the Library of Congress to do an oral history of Michigan's auto workers and what they remember.

Everybody in Michigan has had somebody whose life and livelihood centered around an auto plant. 

It was part of the life here and it permeated just about every region of the state.

I'm anxious to listen to auto workers tell their stories.

It's part of our identity from being born and raised in Michigan.
