Everyday Creativity

A segment from CAID's Panel Discussion on Art, Race and the Image of the City.

In this clip, Ron Scott, founder of the Detroit chapter of the Black Panthers speaks beautifully hear about the creative class in relationship to what he describes as "everyday creativity."

Also in this segment, Shea Howell puts this recent media focus on artists and Detroit's image in context with a look at the early days of Detroit Summer and how the narrative of Detroit as it is represented in the mainstream media de-legitimizes the capacity for black people to contribute to a positive and productive text while parallel media attention around white artists as essentially generative extends this narrative.
