Detroit’s massive, annual community service event known as “ARISE Detroit! Neighborhoods Day,” returns for another year of bringing together community groups, block clubs, churches and volunteers to improve and beautify the city and show the pride residents have in their neighborhoods. The event will be held August 6 this year.

Ahead of the event, “American Black Journal” host Stephen Henderson talks with ARISE Detroit! Executive Director Luther Keith about the improvement projects, resource fairs, concerts and art festivals on tap for this year’s event. Plus, Keith announces a major collaboration with the Detroit Public Schools Community District to beautify the district’s schools.
