He talked with our Nima Shaffe following his time on stage and mentioned the importance of S.T.E.M. education. S.T.E.M. which stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics is an important piece of the education puzzle and said to be one direction we need to move going forward.

Throughout the morning, faces familiar to Detroiters graced the stage to discuss the importance of being apart of the renaissance and turn around in this city.
