My Detroit Story: Pastor David Bullock

in My Detroit Story by

I continue my July feature of the Preacher David Alexander Bullock by sharing some of his Detroit Stories. This is a special youtube video feature that’s all of 7 minutes but fantastic! Pastor Bullock shares stories about Mayor Coleman Young vs NWA, Nelson Mandela, and the beloved Ortheia Barnes. This feature provides a closer look into the upbringing and cultural mix of Pastor Bullock. We also discuss his passion for music. As a bonus he offers an exclusive listen to his song ‘Price of Love.’

Ortheia Barnes Music Festival

Featuring performances by Khary WAE Frazier, David Bullock, Luther Keith, and Thornetta Davis. We will honor the legacy of Ortheia Barnes in spirit and song. Advance tickets are $20 and tickets at the door are $25.

I welcomed an open discussion with the Honorable Sharon McPhail for the Detroit is Different podcast’s November 2014 Politics theme. We discussed a mix of topics regarding her commitment to family, Detroit, and advocacy. Her journey from Massachusetts, to leading the Wolverine Bar Association, to working with Mayor Coleman Young are all covered.

Currently Sharon McPhail is a superintendent of a K – 12 school. We discuss the roles families and fathers play in the lives of children. Also the impact hip-hop has. This is an interview rich with content and history. Please enjoy and listen in.
