Beautiful City

Everyone should take pride in their city, no matter the crime rate or the climate. It doesn't mean you have to stay in that city forever, it just means support it, talk positively about, and try your best to improve it. The Black Opera's Video Demonstration for "Beautiful City" (from the album African America ) is a depiction of city pride, finding beauty in the smallest details, and what gentrification can do to a city. But in the bigger scheme of things, it's more about the people you love in whatever city you call home, that's the true beauty of a city. This Video Demonstration was filmed in Detroit, but can be applied to any American city going through a similar transition.
