The Metropolitan Detroit Branch of the ACLU was chartered in 1952 and joined the Lansing and Ann Arbor area chapters in 1961 to form the ACLU of Michigan, coordinating civil liberties activities for these and several other chapters that formed over the next decades. Their records related primarily to the Detroit Branch and include subjects such as: academic freedom; censorship; church and state; civil liberties; police brutality; HUAC; and legal assistance to prisoners.
