"Detroit is Black," is based on the writing, "I SEE WHAT YOU DOIN," I wrote, in 2014.

Tiff Massey, "I wanted to comment on what was truly taking place in Detroit at that particular moment, which unfortunately are current events. There's a cover story, and then there's the real thing; what happening on the ground. Everyone is talking about Detroit, but no one wants to talk about the real issues surrounding the city. The Detroit native narrative is missing. The native tongue is lacking in the conversation. What makes a city? What nurtures a city?"
