The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History will commission a new theatrical work entitled Salt City by poet and playwright jessica Care moore, reflecting on themes of gentrification and cultural erasure, a much-debated effect of the Motor City’s economic revitalization. A mix of theater, dance, poetry and techno music all by Detroit artists, Salt City is the story of a city's survival and change through time.

“Artists sense the needs of a city and respond to them, and this production will speak powerfully about the present moment in Detroit,” comments Juanita Moore, President & CEO of the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. “We are thrilled to have received the Joyce Award, and we know that this project will expand and enhance the dialogue about how to build equitable communities in Detroit and beyond.”
