re:unite at the Wright

Re:Unite At the Wright- The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History

If you are looking for something to do with your family I suggest going to the Charles H. Wright Museum. There will be an unveiling of a sculpture by Charles McGee that is titled United We Stand. This sculpture was made to commemorate the 1967 Detroit Rebellion. This should be an impressive piece since it is twenty-foot by twenty-foot.

There will be plenty of food, activities and live performances by Detroit Poet Laureate Naomi Long Madgett, the Mosaic Youth Theatre, and Mike Ellison.

This is a free event and starts at 3:30 PM. The Charles H. Wright Museum is located at 315 East Warren Avenue in Detroit.

Detroit’s 315th Birthday Celebration – TV Lounge

The TV Lounge has partnered with Raise the Deep to throw Detroit a birthday party. The event will be on Sunday July 24. There will be a BBQ and the day will be filled with live music. Go hang out and listen to Chuck Daniels, Rex Sepulveda, Loren, Rebecca Goldberg, Aran Daniels, and Mister Joshooa.

The party starts at 3:00 PM and will go until 2:00 AM. Since this is a bar the event is 21 and over.


Mo Pop Festival-West Riverfront Park

We just wanted to remind you that this weekend July 23-24 the Mo Pop Festival is happening over at the West Riverfront Park. If you have the extra money to get a ticket it sounds like it will be a fun time.

There will be three stages for musical performances, a food truck rally, craft bazaar, biergarten, an arcade, and a tech tent.

It’s on the steeper side but this is big lineup of musical acts. Tickets are $89.50 per person for one day, or $125 per person for the whole weekend. You can purchase tickets and find out the music schedule on the Mo Pop website.
