Take a walk down Flint, Michigan’s main thoroughfare, and Saginaw Street resembles a city in transition. Ask any of the 102,000 residents, whose number has been rapidly declining since big auto’s exodus, and Michigan’s seventh largest city feels anything but lucky: Stagnant economy. Dizzying crime rate. And a water crisis that has captivated a nation. To say that Flint has been hit with a bad blow would be an understatement. The city has taken it on the chin, and is now primed for its second act. The city’s resiliency is emblematic of the can-do spirit of its residents.
While Flint has been shaken by a federal state of emergency fueled by the unimaginable, individuals in the community are charting a new course flowing with a hope and optimism that might just make all the difference.
