These are just some of the countless innovations occurring throughout Detroit, and I feel extremely fortunate to be able to experience even a fraction of them. However, it is also becoming exceedingly apparent that the city has been carved into a variety of segments. Midtown, Downtown, and Corktown are just some of the names that have been given to these separate sections, with a variance of characteristics assigned to each. These individual portions combine to make up the greater Detroit area, but each community is viewed very distinctly from the next.
Many rejuvenations occurring across this city are being unevenly distributed. Certain segments benefit far more than others. Innovators have the right idea: it's time to take action. In order for true regeneration to take place, they must place extra care on the inclusion of ALL people of Detroit, not just the demographically favored. Although my time here has just begun, I look forward to joining Detroiters as they strive towards their future.
