What: Free showing of We Are Not Ghosts.
A local reviewer says it best:
"We Are Not Ghosts comes not to bury Detroit, but to praise the resilient people who are giving the city new life through creative, empathetic community involvement. More than fresh vegetables are available in the community garden and public farmers' market; hopes for the future grow here too. Part of this engaging film's power comes from its depiction of cross-generational community action; we see youth, families, and neighbors working together. Elders such as Grace Lee Boggs and younger community activists and artists such as Myrtle Thompson Curtis and Jessica Care Moore share wisdom and a kind of tenacious optimism that viewers will find inspiring."
