Woodlawn Cemetary: Motown's Final Resting Place

BY JOHN MILROY
@ VOL 2 ON AUG 20, 2015

John Milroy is from the Detroit area and Motown is one of his favorite subjects. In this talk he tours the Motor City's rich history via Woodlawn Cemetary - the final resting place of many famous music legends who resided nearby.

"If the grey stones of these fences could talk, or more accurately, sing, they would tell the story of Detroit through the rise and fall of the civil rights movement, through the halcyon days of Motown."

The Happy Place of Music

BY SARAH WILLIAMS
@ VOL 27 ON OCT 02, 2018

Sarah Williams spent the bulk of her life as an athlete, either in or on top of the water. Athletics was a source of joy and strength, as well as an escape. However, as she transitioned into adulthood, she lost connection to this valuable resource until she discovered a new one. One that would prove to be available not only 24/7, but valuable in more ways than she could have imagined.
