Sam White

Growing up in 7 Mile Detroit, Sam White fell in love with Shakespeare after her mom caught her listening to hip hop and made her read his complete works instead. Now as an adult, she believes in a different Detroit than you hear on the news, one where the arts are revitalizing culture and community. She is the founder of Shakespeare in Detroit which performs in places where people live, work, and play from high schools and public parks to warehouses and recycling centers. Sam shares her remarkable journey reminding us that our best work is done when others say it can’t be.
