Our Balfour story: Three generations, one block

Family photos document memories and milestones in MorningSide.

Over three generations, grandmother Patricia Robinson, mother Tamiko Clark, and daughter DaTrice Clark have lived on the same street in MorningSide. Their family story doubles as a history lesson in the neighborhood.

The true essence of any neighborhood is best understood by the people who live, work, play, and stay in the neighborhood. While some Detroiters have a citywide history, this story is particularly special because multiple generations chose to stay on the same block in MorningSide.

Although just about every change that a neighborhood experiences can be traced back to a citywide trend or new development, the moments with the most impact happen right at home.

That's why Trice Clark invited the women in her family to share their stories, and walk us through pivotal moments in the MorningSide community and the city of Detroit.
