A historic event is being planned for this summer in Detroit.
A 70-year-old assistant basketball coach who killed one teenager and wounded another as they attempted to rob him at gunpoint outside of a Detroit high school will not face charges in the case.
One teenager was shot to death, another shot and wounded, around 7:30 p.m. outside Martin Luther King High School on the city’s near west side.
2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the Great March to Freedom, where some 250,000 people marched down Woodward Avenue in 1963.

The employees will lend a hand at a community center in River Rouge, Vista Maria and several food banks and pantries.
