In “We Are Not Ghosts,” Detroiters are reinventing the old Motor City as a vibrant new self-sustaining and human-scaled city for a post-industrial world.

Fifty years ago Detroit was booming with two million hard-working people living the American Dream. Then the auto industry crashed and so did the Motor City. Most moved away; whole neighborhoods turned into wastelands. But some didn’t give up on the city they love. They had a vision of Detroit as a human-scaled city for a post industrial world, and they are working to make it real.

We Are Not Ghosts” tells their stories: from community businesses, to place-based schools, to thriving urban gardens and spoken word artists. These are the tales of Detroiters remaking their city with vision and spirit.
