Award-winning broadcast journalist Amyre Makupson will serve as Master of Ceremonies and moderator of the event, which begins with remarks from Shirley Stancato, president and CEO of New Detroit-The Coalition, and Dr. Daniel Krichbaum, president and CEO of Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion, about the 1967 uprising in Detroit and other historical points of note. Following that -- and some quick words from Ebony Reed of the Detroit News -- the five panelists will offer their frank opinions about the legacy of 1967 and the future of Detroit, including their personal views on the region and what we think it will take to make Detroit a world-class city. The event concludes with a question and answer session among the panelists and audience members.
I am grateful to have the opportunity to express my views about Detroit's future, and humbled to share the stage with the other panelists, five dynamic, young leaders that include:
- Ethriam Brammer, Assistant Director of Chicano Boricua Studies at Wayne State University;
- PJ Cherrin, Community Relations Associate of the Jewish Community Relations Council;
- Hannan Deep, Director of Communications for Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services (ACCESS);
- Dalton Roberson Jr, program associate of New Detroit;
- Bankole Thompson, senior editor of the Michigan Chronicle.
