  • Will Detroit's resurgence leave black Detroiters behind?

    A stimulating piece of reporting mixed with commentary appeared over the weekend on the politico.com site. It's a piece entitled "Is There Room for Black People in the New Detroit" by Suzette Hackney, a former Detroit journalist now living and working in Toledo, Ohio. Hackney takes a look at the "New Detroit" — the pockets of redevelopment mostly occupied by freespending white people — and points out how these enclaves of vitality aren't necessarily trickling down to the longtime residents who've stuck it out through tough times.
