Uptown Detroit- Along Eight Mile

  • Baker’s Keyboard Lounge 20510 Livernois Ave Detroit, MI, 48221 United States (map)

The walk starts at Baker’s Keyboard Lounge at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 5. From there, walkers will head onto 8 Mile Road, which in that area is home to several banks, a medical laboratory and auto parts store.  Hear the history of 8 Mile, and a little about its future (including a new shopping center nearby anchored by Meijer). Someone who lives right on 8 Mile also will share their perspective and stories before walkers head into the quieter tree-lined streets of Greenacres. The walk ends with conversation and snacks – and some music.  We have no indication that Eminem will show up but we may play at least one of his songs!
