Detroit Youth Poets Describe The Streets They Walk Each Day

October 17, 2014





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 worked with these students to help tell their stories. You can hear the young poets' voices and see their streets here.

Street Dreams is part of Inheriting Detroit, WDET’s ongoing series that looks at all aspects of life in Detroit through the eyes of young poets.
