Todd Russell Perkins shared a humbling amount of knowledge and commitment. The entrepreneur opened up about his interest in business and start of his now leading Perkins Law Group. The podcast interview was part of the 1st Friday event hosted by Perkins Law Group highlighting Black businesses throughout Detroit. An active engaged audience asked about law, his views on the current Police brutality headlines, and reparations. The insight and drive of Attorney Perkins is evident and amazing.
Detroit is Different’s March 2015 feature was the great Thornetta Davis. We spent a month together sharing stories, artistry, and ideas. Saturday March 31, 2015 at the Jam Handy Thornetta Davis joined me for a live recording of the Detroit is Different Podcast.
We discussed her start as a vocalist. During our discussion for the podcast she highlighted her interest in the Blues. Thornetta shared the story of her introduction into singing, writing, and performing the Blues. Thornetta is a gem to Detroit’s artistry.
The most intriguing fact she shared was the making of her song ‘Sunday Morning Music’ from her first studio album. It’s one of my favorite songs from Thornetta. I offer you a sample of the song to begin the podcast.
