Detroit is Different the Creative Oneita Jackson

in Introduction by

I introduce you all to Oneita Jackson. Oneita is known by many as the former author of the O-Street Blog for the Detroit Free Press. She was an editor at the Free Press for years and that brought her to Detroit. Since leaving the Free Press she’s designed fashions, kept writing, and also become a cab driver providing tours of Detroit. Oneita’s takes on Detroit, life, race, and more are in her ‘Nappy-Headed Negro Syndrome’ book. It’s a critically acclaimed book exploring race, identity, and privilege using wit and satire. Our interview is a great introduction to one of the most creative Detroiter’s you’ll ever meet.
