Many people have sight and lack vision. Theo Broughton of Hood Research is labeled as legally blind but has enacted vision to lead Hood Research with Reggie Crawford for decades. The community group has advocated for social justice, human rights, and equal opportunity for Detroiters. Did you know her work with Tom Pope (mentor of Joe Madison), Dr. Claude Anderson, and Don Barden all gathered thousands of Detroiters to launch businesses in vertical & horizontal markets?

Theo Broughton also raised Chris Broughton (& Michelle Broughton). Chris’s work has led him across the world as a magician, director, and business investor. Today Chris is a leading partner of the Mims Motor Company group planning to break ground in Detroit this year. Chris also is a majority partner in one of China’s leading streaming video services offering Chinese and American content.

This dual interview explores the relationship of creativity, business, and social justice between a Mother and son.

What began as a journey engaging hip-hop audiences, has grown into a career as a marketing consultant. As business people have seen my work, I was propositioned many times to provide graphic design, photography, videography, event planning, website development, and social media campaigning. These initial business contracts inspired me to build Creative Differences Marketing. I’ve balanced my entrepreneurial experience with formal education from Walsh College of Business and Accountancy. My degree in Marketing serves me well in understanding many of the formal, universal, and theoretical marketing approaches used in corporate environments. Formulating this business model has been anchored by the success of my BLOG ‘Detroit is Different.’ I create all content for Detroit is Different. This serves as a prototype of the ways I can design events, websites, graphics, music, podcasts, social media campaigns, and e-mail campaigns. ‘Detroit is Different’ focuses on the people and places of Detroit that add to the culture. Through these people and places, themes are driven. These themes will partner with, sponsor, and advertise for businesses and organizations using this innovative multilevel marketing approach.
