On Being in Detroit

In December, before the holiday Krista Tippett of NPR’s On Being was in town for an interview with Grace Lee Boggs at her home on the East Side of Detroit.  As fate would have it some of us had an opportunity to have Krista visit our projects:  Feedom Freedom Growers and The Project House.

Anyway, this announcement, just in:

On Being in Detroit

by Trent Gilliss, senior editor

A few days before the holiday break, we flew to the Motor City for an interview with Grace Lee Boggs at the Boggs Center in East Detroit. The 96-year-old philosopher and activist did not disappoint, and neither did some of the wonderful people and projects happening there. Look for our show “Becoming Detroit” this coming Thursday, January 19.

Along the way, we stopped by to see our good friend Mikel Ellcessor, the general manager ofWDET at Wayne State University, and couldn’t resist having Krista pose with this massive wall sign in the lobby. This public radio station is doing some pretty interesting on-the-ground reporting and community building; check ‘em out online or on the radio, if you’re in the area.
