When I think about Detroit and living in the city again, it helps me to think about Harlem and how in just 33 years I witnessed first hand the transformation of a dangerous and degraded neighborhood into a place where people want to raise their families. I believe this is possible in Detroit as well.
Big thanks to TEDx Lansing for featuring me and Detroit Diaspora alongside the 9 other all-star speakers.
With each person putting out positive vibes from wherever they are, more momentum builds. That momentum build potential and that potential builds power. The power to change. The power to overcome. The power to recover from being down, but not out.
