Greetings from Detroit!
Thanks all of you who came by to see Kadia last week in Detroit! Our dresses will be in residence at Detroit is the New Black through the end of the month, so stop in and say hello!
We asked Kadia to share some thoughts from her first visit to Detroit:
I was very excited to go to Detroit with Zuri but what I discovered exceeded all of my expectations! I received such a warm welcome and had the chance to learn about the amazing art scene of the city. Visiting art sites such as the Heidelberg Project and Dabls’s African bead store and hearing about their stories was so enriching! Meeting the Zuri family in Detroit was the best part and I can’t wait to come back and have even more Coney Islands! Merci Détroit!
WHAT WE'RE READING // Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jessmyn Ward
This is in many ways a ghost story, where the living and dead, past and present struggle to find a place in this world and the next. Jojo lives with his grandparents in Bois Sauvage, Mississippi, and when his mother comes home from another one of her drug-fueled benders to take him and his younger sister to pick up their father from prison, they journey through memories of generational traumas finding pain and release.
