In the 1796 Detroit census both slaves and free African Americans are listed. The abolitionist movement was strong and the part of a "underground railroad" ran through Michigan. In 1855 the state passed a "personal liberty law" blocking the recovery of fugitive slaves. The automobile industry attracted African Americans to Detroit in the 1900s.<ref>Alice Eichholz, ed., ''Red book : American state, county and town sources'' (Provo, Utah: Ancestry, 2004), 343.
