Evening – Hush House/Cultural Event (hosted by At Peace)

What happened? What did we learn? Who did we hear from?

  • Spoken word group
  • Insite the Riot
  • Mama Sandra: Detroiters’s history and values; critiquing the justifications of EM; situating Zone 8; help has to start at home, supporting grassroots vs. corporations; ‘regions of refuge’ & ‘communities of compassion,’ creating new economic systems with political power, e.g., Hope Garden
  • Monica Lewis-Patrick: Detroit property is getting deliberately undervalued to move out African-American population, to move in suburbans back into ‘city we built’
