On October 25th (this Friday) will be a scholar/activist exchange on urban struggle and community building focused on Detroit.
It is called “Detroit: Movement City” and will be at the Rackham Amphitheatre from 12:00pm until 6:00 pm.
Notable speakers are Detroit activist Grace Lee Boggs, and also Kim Sherobbi who you all met at the Cass Commons during our Detroit trip.

The in-progress, public spreadsheet displays the foundation, the grantor, the grantee, and the amount donated.
