Arts & Culture



“I’m a fan of Detroit Public Television, so I said that I’m going to work at getting the Detroit Youth Choir on public television because I think it would be just absolutely great for DYC’s reputation. It paved the way for them to aim higher.”

Rhonda Turnbull Board member of the Detroit Youth Choir, which was invited on “America’s Got Talent” after appearing on “Detroit Performs”

 

One Detroit



“I wanted to help other families because I know what families are going through and they don’t know which way to turn, what to do. Watching the (American Black Journal/One Detroit) Roadshow, it was like a huge light bulb went off. Like, aha, I know what I wanted to do!”

Early Childhood Education



“It allowed the families to connect with each other. A lot of them don’t know how to work with their children. And then they come and see us work with them. They said, ‘Oh, I can do that, too.’ ”

Kelley Williams Lead facilitator of a Detroit PBS KIDS Ready Jet Go! family workshop

 

Great Lakes Now



“The role that public television has in keeping people involved and informed is very critical. Public television makes us aware, gets us to think. It’s putting information out there. Now, it’s up to us to decide what to do with that information.”
