DETROIT (WXYZ) — It spans across the east and the west side of Detroit! It is full of history, culture, diversity, possibility and progress.

The people of Detroit's District 5 are proud, present and strong in their conviction about the vibrancy of their communities.

"This is where we get to learn about each other and build our relationships because right here you're in you're rawest form," said Miss Edythe Ford, who goes by "Queen of the East Side."
