This month’s theme is ‘Detroit Worldwide.’ For over 300 years Detroit has had a mix of impacts from the world. America’s most densely populated place for Arab Americans is here in Dearborn MI. The Polish and Bengali presence in Hamtramck MI is a world to it’s own. Detroit is Different (pun intended) because we make up a very dynamic mix of cultural, social, and experiential backgrounds.

Connected to this very subject is the Cinetopia International Film Festival that I will be presenting at this week. Cinetopia is an international film festival screening 110 films between Detroit and Ann Arbor from Wednesday June 4 through Saturday June 8, 2014. I will be presenting ‘If Detroit were Heaven.’ This is an interpretation of my Detroit story told through an analysis of my hip-hop song lyrics. I share the unique connections my songs have to my relationships with my father Greg Frazier CPA, Attorney Milton Henry (RIP), my Grandmother Mary Lee Brown (RIP), and the co-founder of Focus :HOPE Eleanor Josaitis (RIP).

This will be at 5 eLement Hip-hop Art Gallery located at 4605 Cass Ave Detroit MI 48201 (inside the First Unitarian Church enter through Red Door located off Forrest Ave).

If Detroit were Heaven’ is a free event that starts at 6pm and is welcome to all ages.
