Historical society launches Detroit Video History Archive

"An initiative is now underway to preserve, digitize, and share a sizable trove of video tapes and film reels, each of which hold pieces of the city's story," the Society's YouTube states. 

They even put together a trailer filled with some of their best finds. Watch it below and feels all the feels.
