Stephen Henderson has been Editorial Page Editor for the Detroit Free Press since January 2009. He has won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, the 2014 Scripps Howard Award, and the 2001 ASNE writing award for editorials. He was the National Association of Black Journalists’ “Journalist of the Year” in 2014. Henderson hosts a daily radio show, Detroit Today, on WDET 101.9 FM, and the weekly talk shows “American Black Journal” and “MiWeek,” both on Detroit Public Television.

The Tuxedo Project seeks to transform the neighborhood around Stephen Henderson’s birth home on Tuxedo Street into a center for change that celebrates and leverages the literary arts. Can one Detroiter’s look back to a single home, on a single block in the city, inspire broader organization and momentum that can change an entire neighborhood? We believe it can! If we can work together, little by little, starting with one house, one block, one neighborhood, one community, we can bring our whole city into this recovery.

This is the fifth of a six-lecture series. The subject is The African American Experience.
