Four future projects Detroiters can expect around 12th and Clairmount foleya@detroitmi.gov Mon, 07/16/2018 - 18:17

If one were to go through a list of the most notable of intersections in Detroit — Mack and Bewick, Dexter and Davison, Seven Mile and Gratiot among them — then 12th and Clairmount might be at the top. Detroiters know it’s the historic site where the 1967 rebellion broke out, but for those living there — especially those still living there long after the last tank left — it’s home.

Jerk X Jollof brings taste of African and Caribbean culture to Detroit and beyond clarkek@detroi… Thu, 08/31/2017 - 10:20

It's a sweaty, fast-paced frenzy of sound, smell and taste: a Nigerian flag waves frantically through the air, pulled by a young woman wining up to Maleek Berry’s hit song “Kontrol.” Colorfully patterned West African-inspired clothing dots the pulsing crowd. The song shifts to something faster: “Scene” by GBM Nutron. The sweet sound of Soca brings the dance floor to life, and the temperature reflects it. My glasses begin to fog, my legs ache from dancing, and my lips still tingle from the suya I ate earlier.
