I, Too, Am America: Segregation in Metro-Detroit

The Illuminated team has arrived to its second destination: Metro-Detroit! Our home-stay foci have been intentionally selected, to provide our team with an experience connected to our themes. For this reason, we chose the Lamont Street Collective, an arts and activist space, in Washington DC as our home-stay destination. In Metro-Detroit, we have selected Islam, and our fellows are currently staying with a Muslim family.
