A single Detroit girl's guide to Valentine's Day

If today, right now and for the time being you’re single, you already know Instagram is about to become annoying next Wednesday. You should put the phone down. 

Truth be told, being single is awesome in a city like Detroit, where there’s more to do than one might expect. So instead of moping around or eating a quart of ice cream by yourself, enjoy these fun things for Detroit singles this Valentine’s Day. 


Meet the Detroit entrepreneur who wants to create the ‘Black Amazon’ for black-owned businesses

Maybe Detroit didn’t get Amazon’s second headquarters because it has a growing online marketplace of its own.

Peaton Brown Jr., affectionately known as Petey, created the Mall of Detroit (M.O.D) to help build Black-owned brands in the city. “I want it to be like the Black Amazon; or even bigger than Amazon,’’ the soon to be 24-year-old said.
