Do you want to know what’s happening in Detroit communities? Do you want to find out what neighborhood groups, block clubs, and businesses outside of downtown Detroit give to the city? The HUB is a true voice for Detroit. The HUB was founded by Jackie Berg. I had a one on one heart to heart with Jackie about her inspiration to start the HUB from the late Sam Logan who led the Michigan Chronicle for years.
