The Power of a Promise: Education and Economic Renewal in Kalamazoo

By Michelle Miller-Adams | Go to book overview

Part 2
Impact

Many of the people who are watching around the country—and they are watching us—they don’t realize that we are an urban core city. We have a poverty rate of 25 percent. We are one of the cities in this country that urban experts have debated about for the last decade—whether we have a future, whether our kind of city has a future in the new economy.

—Mayor Hannah McKinney, November 15, 2005

Along whatever lines we have been divided before, whether it was lines of income, lines of class, lines of color, lines of achievement, today we proclaim to all the world that we are one community with one vision and one common future … So, my brothers and sisters, whether we were expecting it or not, whether we want it or not, we are now ambassadors of the new Kalamazoo, and we must say to the world that we are the best, that we are an example for the rest of the world to follow.

—Pastor J. Louis Felton, November 15, 2005
