In the summer of 2013, Rose and her dog Alfie packed up their apartment in Harlem, New York and headed to Detroit.
Rose is a life lover, reporter, human rights scholar and stubborn risk taker. You can find her on Twitter by looking for @rosehackman or contact her by writing to rose.hackman [at] gmail.com
Alfie is a black lab mix with an addiction to leaping into fresh grass or snow, depending on the time of year. You can track him down most mornings along the Dequindre Cut, heading towards the riverfront.
