I'd Rather Be Free
Kids grow up fast in Flint, Michigan, a city that’s been through so much for so long. Traumatic experiences are a part of life and often get the better of people, especially the young.
I’m from Flint
Tanadia posted this poem on Facebook after she was released from GVRC. Her friend Pepper had been murdered and she took to social media to express her grief.
I Dream a World
A’dalea’s dreams a world much different that her own. Flint was once the American Dream. Today it is the American nightmare.
Get Back Girl
Tanadia doesn’t give in to despair—never count her out. A tough luck city with a resilient spirit, her hometown of Flint is the same way.
