Model D TV: LGBT leader of color Adrienne Maree Brown

Adrienne Maree Brown has worked on the ground floor of social movements honing her skills. From 2006 to 2010, she was the executive director of the Ruckus Society, a California-based organization that trains activists in non-violent direct action. She worked with a green building project in New York’s Hudson Valley, and eventually brought her skills to Detroit.

A key point in her trajectory occurred in 2006, when Brown was invited to consult with Detroit Summer, a multi-racial, inter-generational collective that has been working to transform communities through youth leadership. Producer Tom Hendrickson recorded Brown's thoughts on her re-location and work in Detroit in this episode of Model D TV.
