Detroit youth poets describe the streets they walk each day

Quintin Pope

Four middle school students at Marcus Garvey Academy on the city’s East side shared poems and photographs of the dreams they have for the streets they walk each day.


WDET partnered with the InsideOut Literary Arts Project, the Off/Page Project and these students to help tell their stories.
