The Detroit Journal: Telling the City’s Stories
We pulled this video off a website called The Detroit Journal.
The site features a bunch of beautifully produced trailers exploring what life in Detroit is like for ordinary people.
This first one is called “William Foster is a Good Man.” It shares one man’s story of addiction and redemption.
I actually wasn’t able to find a ton of information about this project, but it is very intriguing. I met a man once in Youngstown, who was from Detroit, and he told me a similar story — being exposed to heroin before his adult life had even begun and spending decades as a functioning addict working for GM before winding up in a Youngstown treatment center and turning his life around.
We’ll be watching this project to see where it goes.
