Metro Detroit strives to be a world-class city everyday, and it does it while attracting all kinds of classes, creeds and ethnicities of people from around the world. The Motor City has the largest Arab population in the world outside of the Middle East. We built the world's first Holocaust Museum. The African-American community, one of the largest in the U.S., has produced some of the world's biggest icons over the last century, ranging from Joe Louis to Berry Gordy. We might not always get along, but we know how to get the job done.
