Public radio program 'On Being' focuses on Detroit
It seems the entire nation is watching what will happen in the Motor City.
A new documentary opens this weekend looking at Detroit as the epicenter of the fallout of the new global economy.
And now, in their latest episode, the public radio program On Being uses Detroit to look at rebuilding.
The program's producers write the program is:
A Detroit you probably haven't seen in the news. It's a city of vigor — a place where neighbors are reimagining work, food, and the very meaning of humanity. To meet these people is to gain perspective on all of our work, and how we might imagine possibility in our own community.
The program includes conversations with 96 year-old social activist Grace Lee Boggs about reinventing society.
