Truth. I came to Detroit because of my career and although I adore this city and am constantly shelling out positive stories for my publications, I do feel like there is a sense of denial. Detroit hasn't been the easiest place to live BUT that isn't due to the stereotypical reasons the national media portrays. I would like to initiate a real discussion that explores local entrepreneurs' and artists' fear of criticism, competition and new-to-Detroit residents.
