Brown In Detroit

Brown In Detroit aims to be a platform for South Asians in the Metro-Detroit area to share their stories, and a network for us to connect our experiences. The South Asian community, both in Detroit and worldwide, is full of unique individuals that often do not get the space to shed a light on their lives. We feel it is important, to not only give our community a spotlight, but also to promote and embrace it. Brown In Detroit hopes to work with various creatives, artists, bloggers, singers, dancers, models, business owners, and others in order to create a cohesive network in which we can all provide proactive support to each other in our endeavors. In doing so, we also hope to highlight marginalized individuals, and become a forum for tackling social issues that are often avoided in discussion in our community. Finally, while Brown In Detroit will keep the Detroit namesake to bring a positive light to an incredible city, we hope to expand our medium and our reach to other U.S. cities and even South Asia. We firmly believe that using a collective voice is the key to making a lasting impact.
