Creating an All-American City

With the city's close relationship with General Motors, Flint was one of the most thriving cities in the United States. The community took a hit when the Beecher Tornado devastated northeast Flint on June 8, 1953. With several deaths and homes destroyed, Flint turned toward General Motors, the United Auto Workers, and the GM employees to help with funding relief efforts.
