Tune in and see me discuss the future of race in Detroit tonight
A lot can change in a year, heck a couple of months. The city of Detroit has been through a lot: Kwame, proposed Automaker bailouts, population loss, threats of election disenfranchisement but is that all that’s happening in the D? While we know it’s so cold there, what lies on the horizon for the Motor City and its surrounding towns? What can the past tell us about the future of the area? And what are the people close to the Metro area saying about the role race plays in all this?
Tune into WTVS Detroit Public Television tonight to see me and a panel of experts discuss the role of race in Metro Detroit. The fourth installment of Bridging the Racial Divide hosted by Emery King and Paul Smith covers topics including black political leadership, the urban suburban divide, and the greatest hopes for Detroit’s future. I’m joined by an esteemed panel Dave Bing candidate for mayor of Detroit, Rochelle Riley of the Detroit Free Press, Nolan Finley of the Detroit News, Peter Karmanos business and civic leader in Detroit, and Krista Hartoutunian attorney.
If the television is not your medium, check out the simulcast on WDET 101.9 FM and WJR 760 AM. You can check out all four installments of Bridging the Racial Divide on WTVS’ Video on Demand page.
