Ferguson to Detroit: Community Building from the Barbershop to the Polls
Entrepreneurship in St. Louis, MO; electoral organizing in Uniontown, AL; and community wealth building on urban farms in Detroit, MI.
This week on the Laura Flanders Show, we hit the road to report on community stories throughout the country.
We visit activist and musician Tef Poe’s barbershop, Frontline Stylez, a project spurred by the Ferguson uprising. Then, journalist Salaam Green on #BlackVotersMatter in Alabama, a movement led by grassroots coalition organizing, led by black women. Plus, Jerry Hebron and Bryce Detroit join us from Oakland Avenue Urban Farms in Detroit to discuss their plans to revitalize a central commercial district through property reclamation and community land trusts.
