I’m Imani Mixon, a Detroit-based and embraced writer who reports on neighborhood change and creative independence.

The City Proper is where I keep all of my best, most original work.  It's what I do when I'm left to my own devices, without deadlines or limitations. 

That means you get playlists that I've felt through, words that I've sat with, and you're introduced to people who have the freshest ideas in the  whole wide world and are within (my) arm’s reach.

 If you’re new to the squad, welcome! If you been down, thanks for staying down. This is going to be fun.
