National Geographic spotlights Detroit’s resurgence

Jul 1, 2015

Former Detroit Free Press writer Susan Ager has written a story about Detroit for National Geographic magazine.


Detroit’s image across the country and around the world is that of a city not only in decline, but perhaps beyond hope. In story after story, all many see of modern-day Detroit are the remains of long-vacant buildings and streets lined with overgrown, burned-out houses. National Geographic has recently presented a different look at the Motor City.

Current State’s Scott Pohl talks with long-time Detroit Free Press writer and columnist Susan Ager. Her piece in the May issue of National Geographic is called "Taking Back Detroit." It's her first National Geographic assignment.
