powerful, and underestimated.
She’s the Fashion District and Flower Day.
Eccentric and stereotyped.
Jazz, gospel, and techno.
The riots and regeneration.
She’s Paradise Valley and Black Bottom.
and not here for your think piece.
She’s black girl magic.
She’s Mexican town and 8 mile.
Where culture and creativity clash.
The backbone and uncredited muse of America.
Detroit is a Black woman.
Show her respect.
