Why Ingrid is running for Mayor of Detroit. Why creatives and those who are otherwise not politicians should get involved in politics. Detroit's sprawl and history of massive inequality along racial and geographic lines. The primacy of poverty and inequality. The water shut off policies and legacy of attacks on lower income people by Detroit's "Emergency Managers." Ingrid’s interest in political afrofuturism.
