Community Connect Web Extra Detroit Historical SocietyBetween a roaring automobile industry and the illicit-but-profitable Prohibition liquor trade, 1920s Detroit was one of the most exciting, quirky and frenetic cities in the world. While the physical city grew in size from 81 square miles in 1917 to 139 square miles ten years later, its resident count ballooned from 466,000 in 1910 to 1.56 million by 1930. Of these Detroiters, about 75 percent were immigrants or first-generation Americans. Another sizable group were African Americans relocating north during the first phase of the Great Migration. From architecture and culture to politics and technology, the city was reinventing itself, seemingly every day.

Women’s History Month: Honoring Veronica Claybrone Of The Metropolitan Detroit Diaper Bank(CBS DETROIT) - In celebration of Women’s History Month, we’re honoring a Detroit grandmother who runs one of the largest diaper banks in the state of Michigan. Veronica Claybrone started the Metropolitan Detroit Diaper Bank back in 2016 Which serves the Tri-county area at 12 locations. The bank provides potty-training, personal care items, and over 90,000 diapers monthly to babies, seniors, and kids with special needs. The organization really stepped up in the pandemic to provide diapers to families in need when shelves were low on the product. Claybrone says she’s motivated to serve metro-Detroit with basic needs that are often overlooked. “I’m an elderly lady as you can see but I’m happy that I have my boots on the ground and my boots on the ground team they do exactly what I ask and when this pandemic came about they told me to stay home, stay safe, bring in the supplies and we’re going to do what we have to do to make sure that the diapers get out. The Metropolitan Detroit Diaper Bank is the agency, we’re the organization that can get diapers at a discount. We always have all sizes in adults and for babies,” said Claybrone. The Metropolitan Detroit Diaper Bank is a member of the national diaper bank founded by Huggies. For more information and donations visit detroitdiaperbank.com. © 2021 CBS Broadcasting Inc.

On World Kidney Awareness Day, Couple Shares "Gift Of Life" Story(CBS DETROIT)- William and Tracy Hall have been married for nearly 30 years. Although they say they’ve always been connected spiritually and emotionally, they’re now connected physically. Tracy Hall recalls a phone call from Doctors in 2018. “We got a call in October that changed our lives” When William found out he was in desperate need of a Kidney he says his wife Tracy immediately signed up to be tested. “And then we found out she was a match and that’s how this thing ended up unfolding for us.” The Halls say doctors told them there was only a 5 percent chance Tracy would be a match for William, so when they received that phone call in October of 2018, they were overjoyed Tracy said. “He’s African American and I’m Caucasian I’ll just say we didn’t think that there would be any tissue in common and that I’ll be a good match.” She later found out she was the perfect match and a few months later Doctors at Michigan Medicine performed a successful transplant surgery. Now the Hall’s dedicating their lives to advocating for Kidney Health and organ donation. “Drinking more water, something that simple can be the difference between you being a kidney patient and not being a kidney patient.” Said William who attributes hyper tension and high blood pressure to failing kidney health. Tanya Smith Community Relations Coordinator with Gift of Life Minority Organ and Tissue Transplant Education Program says, the need for living organ donors is critical. “Here in Michigan more than 2,500 people are waiting on a transplant and 82% of those people are waiting on a kidney.” Smith said during an interview on Thursday Smith also says 30% of those are African American and that minorities are disproportionally impacted by Kidney disease. Her organization has teamed up this year with Michigan Medicine for a symposium on Kidney Health taking place March 18 and 19th. During that time the Hall’s will share their story. “We would encourage anybody who’s healthy and can even consider donating something.” said Tracy Hall Information below is from the American Nephrology Nurses Association concerning kidney disease awareness.

Michigan State Plans 50-Plus Outdoor Graduation CeremoniesEAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — More than 50 outdoor graduation ceremonies are planned this spring at Michigan State University. School officials said more than 8,400 students earning undergraduate and graduate degrees will be recognized across three weekends in April and May, The Detroit News reported Wednesday. Spring graduation at the East Lansing school typically comes with about 20 ceremonies. A university-wide convocation will not be held this year. Undergraduate ceremonies will be held in large campus parking lots to allow for appropriate physical distancing. Each graduate will be permitted to have up to two guests at the ceremonies to accommodate current attendance restrictions on outdoor gatherings due to COVID-19 virus concerns. Ceremonies for master’s and doctoral degree recipients as well as education specialists will be held virtually and streamed on Michigan State’s commencement website. The colleges of Human Medicine, Law, Osteopathic Medicine and Veterinary Medicine will hold in-person ceremonies. “Graduation is a time-honored academic transition from learning to the world, and the Office of the Provost looks forward to enabling in-person celebrations to recognize this milestone accomplishment for our spring 2021 graduates,” Michigan State Provost Teresa Woodruff said in a statement. “We have resourced every part of our campus community in support of this effort and are confident in our collective abilities to persevere in commending this group of scholars.” On Saturday, parents and students held a rally to show their displeasure with the University of Michigan’s decision to forgo a traditional in-person spring graduation in Ann Arbor. U-M is planning to hold graduation in a virtual format with speeches on May 1. The school is also planning a number of in-person experiences, including professional photographs at Michigan Stadium. School officials said it’s impossible to know what infection and vaccination rates for the virus will be in spring and whether state and local limits on gatherings could change. It’s the second year that a traditional graduation has been canceled at U-M because of the coronavirus. © 2021 Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.
