A section of video on North Corktown resident Howard King. King’s story is one of seven short stories of residents in Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood I worked on with Detroit Free Press columnist John Carlisle that is now on Freep.com.

The automaker promised to restore the building to magnificence and bring thousands of new jobs and new people to the area.
