Imagine Black Culture Without Detroit
The U.S. population is over 331 million people, black people in America make up less than 14% of the population. Imagine American Culture without black people. In many regards American Culture is Black Culture. The music, the clothes, the style, the creativity and art are influenced and inspired by Black Americans. Detroit helped found the middle class, the soul of Black Culture has Detroit’s fingerprints all over it. During this fireside chat with Alicia Jeffreys, SVP of Marketing at Detroit Pistons, the discussion will focus on the NBA restart, the City of Detroit, how the Pistons are impacting the black community during the pandemic and the connection between Black Culture and Detroit. We will discuss the role that sports play when the world is shut down.
