Unless you’ve been living under a vibranium rock, you already know this weekend brings the cinematic premiere of Black Panther. Set in the fictitious African country of Wakanda, Black Panther is the highlight of Black History Month 2018, or maybe all of 2018 as its already the highest-grossing film of the year thus far.

Janice Onwenu and Jennifer Onwenu are shaking up the wig industry in Detroit. The two sisters soft launched their shop Chi Chi Beauty in late November.
“If I started a wig company, it would definitely be with nobody but my sister,” Jennifer, the younger sister says. Chi Chi Beauty sells high quality synthetic fiber units – just simply known as “wigs” to the uninitiated.
At The Neighborhoods, we’re interested in hearing from everybody in Detroit about what matters most to you.
