DETROIT RIVERFRONT CONSERVANCY DONOR SPOTLIGHT
Supporters of the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy share a passion for the continued progress to make the Detroit riverfront a beautiful, exciting, safe, accessible and world-class gathering place for all. Without their commitment and generous support of the riverfront, our work would not be possible. While we have much more to do, the work that has been completed has already had an impact.
Ask Glascoe McKinney to describe what it was like for him growing up in Detroit during the 1930's and the result is a vivid picture of the vibrancy and allure of Paradise Valley - specifically, the historic Paradise Theatre which attracted people from all over the country to hear some of the world's greatest Jazz performers, including Nat King Cole, Lionel Hampton, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, and Count Basie.
