BOBLO BOATS AND THE STORY OF SARAH E. RAY
Aaron Schillinger, Film Director & Producer
Seventy-five years ago a young Black woman was denied a seat on one of the two Boblo boats, the S.S. Columbia. Like the better known Rosa Parks, she refused to back down, taking her fight all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. “Boblo Boats: A Detroit Ferry Tale” is a film that documents that journey. See excerpts of the film and hear about efforts to protect Sarah E. Ray’s house in Detroit and to create a place to share her story.
