Black Michigan Urban-Rural Collaboration

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How do we understand the relationship between urban and rural black communities in the Metro Detroit Area? Our session will explore media-based approaches to form and imagine black urban-rural collaboration. Participants will collectively reflect on the ways this collaboration will enhance social change, while creating projects for socio-political, cultural, and economic cooperation. Participants will design strategies and form relationships to create, plan, maintain this collaborative.
