Reborn on Street Corners: The Detroit Poetry Project began as a test project for the Scarab Club on Twitter. For one month, three highly regarded Detroit poets, M.L. Liebler international poet and Professor at Wayne State University, LaShaun Phoenix Moore, and Cassie Poe, both emerging Detroit talent, submitted entries on the Scarab Club Twitter page about their beloved city.
This effort evolved into more than just a poem of collective words, it became a powerful voice for Detroit. This video includes music by Detroit jazz icon Faruq Z. Bey, and the arresting urban images by native Detroit artist S. Kay Young. M.L. Liebler recites the poem.
