As a professional writer and former educator and business owner, I was impressed with the fire and commitment to the InsideOut Literary Arts Project displayed by the Founder and Executive Director, Terry Blackhawk. Her enthusiasm is contagious. Since then, I have become a donor to this critical project that can change children's lives as they discover their creative selves and speak out. I have read and been moved by the work of these children. I have met the artists who teach and give their deepest selves to keep this program alive and growing. Detroit needs such voices, such belief and such commitment to succeed.
