There are 2 comments on Opening Doors: Sandra Brooks Henriquez (CAS’72), CEO of the Detroit Housing Commission

  1. Thank you Sandra Brooks Henriquez for all you do for housing and urban development! Our students need to hear more about changing the world through public service. Congrats on all you’ve accomplished!

  2. Ms Henriquez, thank you for sharing your story. A coworker of mine here at the University shared a story about being bused to a school in South Boston. He said they threw rocks at the buses as they entered South Boston.He told me he was a frightened kid who did not completely understand WHY.

    A part of the WHY has to do with a woman who graduated from B.U. Law in the mid 1950s.Her name: Louise Day Hicks. She spewed the venom and rhetoric of that era with a loud voice. Very Sturm und Drang.
