DON Weekend (short for Detroit’s On Now) is a celebration of community, connection and making sure people born in Detroit’s neighborhoods are being seen and heard. Hosted by the Sean Anderson Foundation, which is run by global rap star Big Sean and his mother Myra Anderson, the annual event continues to grow, now in its fifth year.
Big Sean, who grew up on Detroit’s west side, is also the Creative Director of Innovation for the Detroit Pistons and a recent Emmy Award winner. DON Weekend is produced in partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of Southeastern Michigan, and this year’s event focused on the Collingwood community on Detroit’s west side.
Big Sean, BGCSM President Shawn Wilson and Detroit City Council President Mary Sheffield spoke with CultureShift about the weekend and its impact on young lives in Detroit.
