Re-imagining Detroit

In conjunction with our affiliate WDET and with support in part by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, The Takeaway is looking at Detroit as a microcosm of what is happening in communities across the country, and talking to people who are working to re-energize, revive and re-imagine their city.

WDET's reporters have offered up a host of compelling stories about Detroit residents, from a clothing designer's rise to fame with the help of platinum-selling rappers, to a health clinic's coalition of Muslim and Jewish doctors who care for the working poor. Explore with us as we look at some of the country's most imaginative citizens, building new communities and businesses in The Motor City.
