Third Thursday Speaker Series: Detroit: A Tale of Two Cities

Thu., July 19, 6-8 p.m.
phone 313-833-0277
charnaes@detroithistorical.org

“Detroit has been the beneficiary of one of the most remarkable rebrandings in recent history,” wrote the Detroit News’s Michael Hodges in his essay, How Detroit Got Its Groove Back. A front-page article in the travel section of the New York Times asks “Detroit, the Most Exciting City in America?” and gushes that the Motor City is “revving back to life.” But is the city’s comeback story an inspiring model for urban recovery or is it a textbook lesson on the negative impact redevelopment and gentrification has on poor and neglected communities? Let's discuss. Free

The Underground Theatre proudly presents A HAPPY LIFE. Works by Charles Mee have the propensity to showcase the extraordinary in the ordinary everyday life. A Happy Life is no exception to this rule. Mee sets his sights on reminding us that we are all artists and that we all create art every day, each in our own ways. In true light-hearted fashion, accompanied with a cacophony of lights, sounds, and a few cookies for good measure. Join our merry band of revelers guided by our host, The Therapist, as we go in search of our own Happy Life. $10
