A Hoe Army bake sale is coming to Outer Limits Lounge in support of local artist

In Detroit, 304 Army Detroit uses sexuality as a weapon to create a culture of liberating self-acceptance and provides a platform to create change. Now, the Hoe Army is organizing a bake sale to raise money to send one of its soldiers to a prestigious arts residency in France! 💥💪🏽

It ain’t easy for a hoe. But what if a hoe were to use her body and sexuality to empower her community, rather than let it be defined by society’s perceptions? This is at the center of the work car…

Detroit’s Only Black-Owned Grocery Store Is Reimagining Food Access

"They didn’t want some bougie ass store. I don’t want to be the person to take the ‘higher moral ground’ and try to always push veganism, or say don’t eat meat, don’t eat fried food. It’s a grocery store, you have to offer something for everyone," Raphael Wright, on his journey to open Detroit's first Black-owned grocery store since 2014.

How a mother dough is nurturing the future for this Detroit pizzeria

How a mother dough is nurturing the future for this Detroit pizzeria: Only the most skilled pizza maker in the house touches the dough at Sicily’s Pizza & Subs in Southwest Detroit. It’s a pizza haven — and community gathering spot — known for its inimitable crust.

Pizza delivery and carryout were a bright spot in the pandemic-era dining scene as folks sought the comfort food as they waited out months of lockdown orders, dining room closures and uncertainty. …

How a Juice Bar Can Become a Beacon of Wellness in Detroit

That’s why spaces in the neighborhoods outside of more gentrified parts of town, where one can practice self-care are so important. Emerging to fill that need are a growing number of new businesses owned by entrepreneurs of color that provide healthy food and gathering spaces.
