ANN ARBOR, MI — Speaking through a megaphone outside the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor, Richard Mack yelled out on Martin Luther King Jr. Day at the construction team working on a new apartment development behind the theater.'Your job, Landmark, is to stop hiring racist contractors!' he said, surrounded by over 100 fellow demonstrators who joined in marching from the University of Michigan Diag, chanting in protest against Georgia-based developer Landmark Properties and Michigan-based United Electrical Contractors.
