Everyone we saw at Big Sean's 4th Annual DON Weekend Block Party
By Derek Dandridge
You can say a lot about Big Sean, but you can't say he doesn't love Detroit or the kids.
The Grammy award-winning artist returned to Detroit for the 4th Annual DON Weekend, a three-day long charity event presented by the rapper, Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan, and Detroit City Council President Mary Sheffield.
This year's events kicked off with a Thursday night screening of God Said Give ’Em Drum Machines, a documentary that takes a look at the early days of techno and how Black Detroiters helped create the genre. On Friday, a private reception and the DON awards were held.
The fun was on Saturday, as DON Weekend concluded with panel discussions around mental health, funding creative projects, and how to help children find their life passions.
The block party followed the panel discussions and featured a kickball tournament, carnival games, live entertainment, an artwalk and much more.
