The Flight Out And The Flight Back In: Transition And Gentrification In Detroit says
We are fortunate to have Marsha Music as our teacher as she examines the topics of white flight and gentrification--topics that help us understand present day Detroit. Marsha Music has life-long roots in Detroit and Highland Park, where she was an activist and labor leader. She is a writer and poet, and she reflects on Detroit and its musical legacy in literary anthologies and on her eponymous blog. She is a noted speaker, storyteller and a contributor to numerous oral history projects and films. She has received acclaim for her essays "The Kidnapped Children of Detroit” and her epic poem, “Just Say Hi.” She is a 2012 Kresge Literary Arts Fellow, a 2015 Knight Arts Challenge awardee, and a 2016 Ideas City Detroit Fellow. In 2015 she was commissioned to create a poem for the celebrated Symphony in D, which she read in performances with the DSO. She lives in historic Lafayette Park and is married to artist David Philpot. Wine and appetizers will be served. RSVP requested.
