A Taste of Detroit, Michigan

did you know?

  1. Detroit, sometimes refers to the Metro Detroit area, a sprawling region with a population of 4,403,437 for the Metropolitan Statistical Area, making it the U.S.A.'s eleventh-largest, and a population of 5,327,764 for the nine-county Combined Statistical Area as of the 2009 Census Bureau estimates.

  2. With the introduction of Prohibition, smugglers used the river as a major conduit for Canadian spirits, organized in large part by the notorious Purple Gang. Strained racial relations were evident in the 1920s trial of Dr. Ossian Sweet, a black Detroit physician acquitted of murder. A man died when shots were fired from Ossian's house into a threatening mob who gathered to try to force him out of a predominantly white neighborhood.

  3. In the year, 1932, Eddie "The Midnight Express" Tolan, a black student from Detroit's Cass Technical High School, won the 100- and 200-meter races and two gold medals at the 1932 Summer Olympics. Joe Louis won the heavyweight championship of the world in 1937.

  4. Urban development in Detroit has been an important issue. In 1973, the city elected its first black mayor, Coleman Young. Despite development efforts, his combative style during his five terms in office was not well received by many whites. Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick resigned his office effective September 19, 2008, after pleading guilty to two counts of obstruction of justice and no contest to one count of assaulting and obstructing a police officer. Kilpatrick was succeeded in office on an interim basis by City Council President Kenneth Cockrel, Jr. until a May, 2009 special election in which businessman and former Detroit Pistons star Dave Bing was elected Mayor for the remaining duration of Kilpatrick's term.

  5. Live music has been a prominent feature of Detroit's nightlife since the late 1940s, bringing the city recognition under the nickname Motown. The metropolitan area has many nationally prominent live music venues. Concerts hosted by Live Nation perform throughout the Detroit area.

  6. Greektown Historic District in Detroit.The city of Detroit has a rich musical heritage and has contributed to a number of different genres over the decades leading into the new millennium. Important music events in the city include: the Detroit International Jazz Festival, the Detroit Electronic Music Festival, the Motor City Music Conference (MC2), the Urban Organic Music Conference, the Concert of Colors, and the hip-hop Summer Jamz festival.

  7. In the 1940s, blues artist John Lee Hooker became a long-term resident in the city's southwest Delray neighborhood. Hooker, among other important blues musicians migrated from his home in Mississippi bringing the Delta Blues to northern cities like Detroit. Hooker recorded for Fortune Records, the biggest pre-Motown blues/soul label. During the 1950s, the city became a center for jazz, with stars performing in the Black Bottom neighborhood. Prominent emerging Jazz musicians of the 1960s included: trumpet player Donald Byrd who attended Cass Tech and performed with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers early in his career and Saxophonist Pepper Adams who enjoyed a solo career and accompanied Byrd on several albums. The Graystone International Jazz Museum documents jazz in Detroit.

  8. Other, prominent Motor City R&B stars in the 1950s and early 1960s was Nolan Strong, Andre Williams and Nathaniel Mayer - who all scored local and national hits on the Fortune Records label. According to Smokey Robinson, Strong was a primary influence on his voice as a teenager. The Fortune label was a family-operated label located on Third Avenue in Detroit, and was owned by the husband and wife team of Jack Brown and Devora Brown. Fortune, which also released country, gospel and rockabilly LPs and 45s, laid the groundwork for Motown, which became Detroit's most legendary record label.

  9. Berry Gordy, Jr. founded Motown Records which rose to prominence during the 1960s and early 1970s with acts such as Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Diana Ross & The Supremes, the Jackson 5, Martha and the Vandellas, The Spinners, Gladys Knight & the Pips, and Marvin Gaye. Artists were backed by the Funk Brothers, the Motown house band that was featured in Paul Justman's 2002 documentary film Standing in the Shadows of Motown, based on Allan Slutsky's book of the same name. The Motown Sound played an important role in the crossover appeal with popular music, since it was the first African American owned record label to primarily feature African-American artists. Gordy moved Motown to Los Angeles in 1972 to pursue film production, but the company has since returned to Detroit. Aretha Franklin, another Detroit R&B star, carried the Motown Sound; however, she did not record with Berry's Motown Label.

  10. In 1990s and the new millennium, the city has produced a number of influential artists, including Eminem, the hip-hop artist with the highest cumulative sales, and hip-hop producer J Dilla. Detroit is cited as the birthplace of techno music. Prominent Detroit Techno artists include Juan Atkins, Derrick May, and Kevin Saunderson.

  11. Many of the area's prominent museums are located in the historic cultural center neighborhood around Wayne State University and the College for Creative Studies. These museums include the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Detroit Historical Museum, Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, the Detroit Science Center, as well as the main branch of the Detroit Public Library. Other cultural highlights in Detroit include Motown Historical Museum, the Pewabic Pottery studio and school, the Tuskegee Airmen Museum, Fort Wayne, the Dossin Great Lakes Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit (CAID), and the Belle Isle Conservatory.

  12. Annual summer events include the Electronic Music Festival, International Jazz Festival, the Woodward Dream Cruise, the African World Festival, the Detroit Hoedown, Noel Night, and Dally in the Alley. Held since 1924, America's Thanksgiving Parade is one of the nation's largest. River Days, a five-day summer festival on the International Riverfront lead up to the Windsor-Detroit International Freedom Festival fireworks, which draw super sized-crowds ranging from hundreds of thousands to over three million people.

  13. the Metro Times is a weekly publication, covering news, arts & entertainment. Also founded in 1935 and based in Detroit the Michigan Chronicle is one of the oldest and most respected African-American weekly newspapers in America.

  14. Detroit and the rest of southeastern Michigan have a humid continental climate which is influenced by the Great Lakes. Winters are cold, with moderate snowfall and temperatures at night occasionally dropping below 0 °F around six times per year, while summers are warm to hot with temperatures exceeding 90 °F on 12 days. Snowfall, which typically peaks from December to through February, averages 43.3 inches per season.

Statement from Student Plaintiffs’ Attorney Following Hearing in Groundbreaking Literacy Case, Gary B. v. Snyder

DETROIT — A United States District Court in Detroit heard oral argument today on a Motion to Dismiss filed by the State of Michigan in Gary B. v. Snyder, a class action lawsuit that seeks to ensure Detroit public school students have access to the most fundamental building block of education: literacy.

Following today’s hearing, Mark Rosenbaum of Public Counsel, lead attorney for the student plaintiffs, issued the following statement:

“The issue underlying today’s hearing is whether the State of Michigan has fulfilled its constitutional obligation to provide a basic education to all its children. As we have outlined to the Court, the answer cannot possibly be yes, as long as a discrete group of Detroit students are compelled by the State to attend schools that lack the core components of such an education.

“The State of Michigan’s argument that children at schools lacking sufficient numbers of qualified teachers, books, labs and computers — and where classroom temperatures range from freezing to over one hundred degrees — suffer no denial of equal opportunity under the Constitution, even as their counterparts in affluent Michigan communities attend schools far exceeding these minimal conditions for a basic education, is as wrong as it is offensive. That the State would go on to say that these children are somehow incapable of learning is beyond the pale.

“In 2017, no child should be forced to ask a court to enforce his or her fundamental right to be given the opportunity to learn, grow and participate in society. Yet here we are. We urge the Court to reject the State’s Motion to Dismiss and give these brave students — on behalf of themselves as well as their peers across the City of Detroit — their day in court. Their future, Detroit’s future and the future of our nations’ commitment to equal protection under the law depends on it.”

Detroit has the lowest literacy rate of any major city in America and the schools where plaintiffs attend have among the lowest proficiency rates in reading, math and other core subjects on state-administered examinations. The suit argues that without access to the core components of a basic education, children are denied the opportunity to achieve literacy, essential to individual advancement and meaningful civic participation.

The reports just last week of increasing numbers of teacher vacancies in Detroit schools, as the new school year rapidly approaches, underscore the urgency of the case and the sorts of obstacles to delivering a basic education confronting the local administrators and certificated teachers within Detroit. The State of Michigan ran Detroit schools for 11 of the past 15 years, during which conditions in the schools deteriorated, only this year permitting any local control to be returned. Even still, the State continues as the entity directly responsible for the lowest five percent of Michigan schools, including all the schools in this case. Additionally, the State retains ultimate responsibility under Michigan’s constitution for guaranteeing every child in the state a public education.

The City of Detroit, international literacy associations, community groups and the Detroit Federation of Teachers have all filed briefs in support of plaintiff schoolchildren.

Detroit, MI – Detroit’s own R&B singer/songwriter, Beth, announces the release of her debut single, “Pillow Talk” on her Indie label, Anise Records. “Pillow Talk” is available now for download on all digital music platforms.

Beth is currently completing her much-anticipated debut solo EP. She also continues to tour as a background singer for KEM, and is a co-host on the “Greg Davis Show” on 910 AM Superstation radio in Detroit.

Beth previously toured the world as a background vocalist for Anita Baker for five years and was a featured singer at the “Tribute to Motown” show at Carnegie Hall, alongside Dionne Warwick, Anita Baker, Martha Reeves, Melba Moore, Boyz II Men, Dennis Edwards, Bebe Winans, and Paul Shaffer.

She has also had the privilege of having performed at the Michigan Inaugural Balls held in Washington D.C. for President Barack Obama's 1st and 2nd terms, as well as for President Bill Clinton and President-Elect, Donald Trump.

Beth has provided vocals on several CDs, including KEM’s Intimacy, What Christmas Means and Promise To Love projects and Yolanda Adams’ Christmas album, What A Wonderful Time and Rock-n-Roll Hall of Famer, Dave Mason's project, 26 Letters, 12 Notes on the song, "How Do I Get to Heaven."

In addition to her roles as a vocalist, Beth is a member of SAG-AFTRA and has held several stage and screen acting roles. Among them, Church Girl and Chosen (stage) and Five Year Engagement and This Must Be The Place (film), as well as performing on numerous television and radio commercials.

Her most memorable moment on stage was being cast in the 2011 remake of the movie, “Sparkle” as the stand-in and body-double for Whitney Houston, during filming in Detroit in 2011.

Beth was a principle vocalist on “Dancing With The Stars, Season 22 - Icons Night,” and has also provided her voice to the television shows: “Ash vs. Evil Dead” on the Starz Network, "Glee Project" on the OWN Network and "American Bible Challenge" on the Game Show Network (GSN).

Beth Griffith is the daughter of Johnny Griffith, the legendary and Multi-Grammy® Award-winning pianist/keyboardist. He was an original member of the Funk Brothers, Motown’s in-house studio band that created the famous ‘Motown Sound.’

Beth’s father was one of only a few classically-trained musicians who worked at Motown. The late Johnny Griffith played on hundreds of Motown songs, including top hits such as, "Stop, In The Name Of Love," "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "I Heard It Through The Grapevine," "What's Going On," "Dancin' In The Streets,” “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch),” "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" and "Shotgun." He also played keys on several non-Motown records, including: "Lonely Teardrops," "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher," "Have You Seen Her?" and "Cool Jerk." At age 16, he played with blues superstar John Lee Hooker, and as a young man in the 1960s, he toured with Dinah Washington, Aretha Franklin and Sarah Vaughan.

Being a young girl in a house filled with such musical brilliance day in and day out, it’s no wonder that Beth’s own musical interests peaked early. At age 5, she began learning how to play the piano alongside her father, and it was evident then, that music was in her DNA.

“Through collaborations with partners, the Health and Human Service Office of Minority Health is forging a new era in health equity. This new era will focus on strengthening measures that will increase equity in policies and programs across health and non-health sectors to reverse and repair the devastating impact of high dropout rates, unsafe neighborhoods, deteriorating homes, lack of affordable transportation, pollution, low wage jobs, and fewer healthy, affordable food options in far too many communities across the country,” United States Department of Health & Human Services. The community conversation is an important opportunity to hear from Detroit residents about improving healthy food conditions in our area.

The summit will also feature comedians Josh Adams and Darius Bennett performing an hour-long family friendly stand-up comedy act. Last year, BMBFA received the Spirit of Detroit Award from Councilman Scott Benson.

“This year, we are excited about continuing to uplift the spirit of Detroit by celebrating the joys of family and parenthood,” states Kiddada Green, founding executive director of BMBFA.

In coordination with families across the country, children of all ages will be lifted by their parents and community members.

Also this year, BMBFA has added Spanish interpreter and American Sign Language accommodations. Registration and event details are located at
