OVERVIEW

For many, the mere mention of Detroit conjures a shock-and-awe response. They picture a city in decline, one wrestling with urban blight and crippling poverty. Headlines of bankruptcy and political scandal. But look further at the Motor City, and you’ll find signs of new life, large and small, springing up in all direction. An arsenal of ingenuity and new ideas encourages, yet begs the question: Does the surge of new restaurants, tech investments and young transplants serve the Detroit majority who struggle at the margins? What will become of the great American city once thought of as the Paris of the Midwest?
