Kinfolk (feat. Leah Hill)

Evann sits down with Leah Hill, founder of Kindred Media & Entertainment, to talk about how she’s gearing up for the second annual Kindred Music & Culture Festival, held in Corktown.

After carefully observing how young, Black Detroiters are underserved in the live entertainment and media industries, Leah came up with the concept for the Kindred Music & Culture Festival. The inaugural festival was held in August 2018, and focused on highlighting the young, Black creatives in Detroit. With one festival under her belt, Leah expresses feeling more calm this time around, but still has the same end goal in mind: for people to have a good, Black ass time.

The second annual Kindred Music & Culture Festival will be held on Saturday, August 10, at Roosevelt Park in Detroit. Tickets can be purchased at
