Detroit Sound Tour: Allied Media Conference
On June 30, 2012 the Detroit Sound Conservancy (DSC) with Pont Productions put together a music tour of Detroit for the Allied Media Conference. On this guided off-site driving tour of legendary Detroit music places, conference attendees explored the landscape of Detroit’s music history through the stories of some of the city’s music griots. That tour was led by Jocelyne Ninneman and Carleton Gholz with a set of griots that included Cornelius Harris (Alter Ego Management), Michelle McKinney (Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History), SupaEmcee, and Adriel Thornton (Fresh Corp). You can see images from the 2012 Allied Media Conference tour here.
