This panel was recorded live in April 2018 at the New Parkway Theater in Oakland. The film focuses on a few Detroiters, like Pastor Barry, that are making positive street level impacts in a city famous for its negative headlines.
Even with it’s heavy subject matter we had a fun, funny and informative panel with the director Tylor Norwood and Oakland comedian Karinda Dobbins. We also end with a Q&A session from the audience.
United States of Detroit will be screening in Washington, DC throughout Sept at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, check their website for details.
Special thanks to Ben Sinclair and Skydojo for organizing this event and the New Parkway in Downtown Oakland for hosting us.
