Detroiters Speak: People's Movement Assembly I

Date: 
Tue, Nov 28, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

City:

Co-curated this semester by Diana Copeland, Will Copeland and Craig Regester, this interactive public course will focus in the first three sessions on the interconnected crises facing everyday Detroiters around water shutoffs, home foreclosures, public schooling, labor and gentrification.

In the last five sessions, however, we'll turn to an exploration and further creative development of the many grassroots community responses happening in Detroit that are pushing back against efforts to privatize practically everything in the City.

Grits & Politics Detroit

Date: 
Sat, Sep 9, 2017 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

City:

TOPIC:
GHETTO ECONOMICS
how do we get our markets back?
how do WE become owners, not be the ones owned?
how do we reclaim our economic power, that was stolen from us?

Detroit has undergone a power and pride shift whereby Black and poor people who live in the city have been marginalized and desensitized to the very processes that affect us.

Grits and Politics Detroit is a regular breakfast hosted by former Wayne County Commissioner Keith D. Williams to energize Black people and poor people about political processes.
