Watch Live: Spirit of Detroit special tonight at 8 p.m.
DETROIT In 1955, the city of Detroit commissioned a sculpture from renowned artist Marshall Fredericks to be placed at the Coleman A. When it was installed, the sculpture was the largest cast bronze statue created since the Renaissance. The Spirit of Detroit drives us to dig deeper, not merely for the best of who we are, but for the best of who we can be for each other. Yet, we see it across Metro Detroit everyday. As we continue to face the coronavirus pandemic and racial strife, Metro Detroiters stand strong to lift each other up.
