Detroit Diaspora at TEDx Lansing

This story, while personal, is not unique. It’s important for all of us to share our Detroit story. Each anecdote chips away at the negative narrative about our city. You can share your story here and we’ll put together a collage that can downloaded and shared. Let’s tell the rich, successful story of great people born and bred in the D.
