Humans of Detroit

“I come down here after work to relax. I am a single mother with four grown children. They were born and raised here. I also grew up here. And ya know, Detroit for me is home, people have a bad taste in their mouth when it comes to different things, like when the papers have all the negativity, they never get to know the good things about Detroit and that’s what makes people want to go in the opposite direction. Me personally, when I speak of my hometown, I’m always like, ‘You got to come here and go enjoy this and go there and do this and do that!’ It’s up and down and plus and minus everywhere, so we need to now embrace what we have. It is what it is.”
