April showers indeed. But BLAC Detroit, like all of you, is pushing through as best we can. We’ve stopped the presses (literally) and, for the first time, published an all-digital issue. You can flip through it just like the real deal, and we hope you do. Because every click counts toward our goal of donating $500 to Detroit Phoenix Center, a local resource center and drop-in shelter serving homeless and insecure youth.
Remind yourself of the issues that matter to Black Detroit and let us introduce you to some local businesses that need your support right now. A few highlights …
