Attorney Jeff Edison radiates the essence of African style and grace, setting a remarkable tone upon meeting him. With a warm smile and infectious laughter, he captivates attention effortlessly, revealing himself as one of the most adept and eloquent communicators one could encounter. Rooted in Detroit, his journey began amidst the fervent struggle to integrate Black history, literature, and studies into the high school curriculum in the late ’60s. Witnessing the transformative impact of activism firsthand, from protesting for change at Mumford High School to challenging racial barriers at Wayne State University Law School alongside luminaries like Chokwe Lumumba, Edison’s commitment to advancing Black self-actualization remains unwavering. In this Detroit is Different, we delve into his experiences navigating the intersection of advocacy and entrepreneurship in America, working with to freedom fighters like his friend and my mentor the late Attorney Chokwe Lumumba. We also talk about his journey exploring the interconnected threads of our ancestral heritage and living half the year in Ghana. Surprisingly we talk about Bunchy Carter and his family’s involvement in the battle for Black liberation with the LA Black Panthers. Join us as we uncover the Detroit is Different perspective through the lens of Attorney Jeff Edison’s remarkable life.

What began as a journey engaging hip-hop audiences, has grown into a career as a marketing consultant. As business people have seen my work, I was propositioned many times to provide graphic design, photography, videography, event planning, website development, and social media campaigning. These initial business contracts inspired me to build Creative Differences Marketing. I’ve balanced my entrepreneurial experience with formal education from Walsh College of Business and Accountancy. My degree in Marketing serves me well in understanding many of the formal, universal, and theoretical marketing approaches used in corporate environments.Formulating this business model has been anchored by the success of my BLOG ‘Detroit is Different.’ I create all content for Detroit is Different. This serves as a prototype of the ways I can design events, websites, graphics, music, podcasts, social media campaigns, and e-mail campaigns. ‘Detroit is Different’ focuses on the people and places of Detroit that add to the culture. Through these people and places, themes are driven. These themes will partner with, sponsor, and advertise for businesses and organizations using this innovative multilevel marketing approach.
