Guardsmen reported one of their units under fire at the intersection and believed they had pinpointed it as coming from the apartment in which Tanya and her family lived.

Ultimately, Battle's store was unable to reopen due to the damaged caused by the riot. As reported by United Press International, "the riots brought out the best, as well as the worst, in people.
The effort transcended denominational lines. By Wednesday [July 26, ], Protestants, Catholics and Jews had established an interfaith emergency center to coordinate the relief work. District collection centers were set up at scores of churches and synagogues across the city. The food, clothing, bedding and cash contributed through them brought to the interfaith center, from which aid was distributed strictly according to need, without regard for race, creed, or color Acts of kindness and generosity were not confined to religious groups.

It was not just a matter of white people being kind to black people. Often it was the other way around, I saw Negro families bringing cool drinks of water to white National Guardsmen standing post in blazing sun.
On several occasions, white reporters--trapped on the streets during wild gun battles between Guardsmen and snipers--were taken into the relative safety of nearby Negro homes, even though opening the door to admit them was a real risk to the Negro family. People can be pretty wonderful--even in a riot. In the early 20th century, when blacks migrated to Detroit in the Great Migration , the city experienced a rapidly increasing population and a shortage of housing.
Blacks encountered strong discrimination in housing.
Both racial covenants and unspoken agreements among whites kept blacks out of certain neighborhoods and prevented most African Americans from buying their own homes.

Segregation also encouraged harsher policing in African American neighborhoods, which escalated black Detroiters' frustrations leading up to the riot. The patterns of racial and ethnic segregation persisted through the midth century. White mobs enforced the segregation of housing up through the s: upon learning that a new homebuyer was black, whites would congregate outside the home picketing, often breaking windows, committing arson, and attacking their new neighbors.

Edwards tried to recruit and promote blacks, but he refused to establish a civilian police review board, as African Americans had requested.

The police system was blamed for recruiting " bigots " and reinforcing bigotry through the department's "value system.
