What is keeping some children from living a full life? In April, One Detroit and American Black Journal convened a community conversation at City Covenant Church in Brightmoor that took a 360 degree view of our children’s well-being. We also explored how residents in and around Brightmoor are working on solutions to help kids succeed and thrive.
