“Con Security”: At Youmacon, Detroit’s signature anime convention, security comes in the form of a kung-fu justice squad.

“Tee Grizzley — Off Parole”: Detroit rapper Tee Grizzley balances a skyrocketing career with legal restrictions on his movement and schedule.

“Soul Skate”: Every year roller skaters from around the world descend on Detroit for Soul Skate weekend, showing off styles from their own hometowns and reconnecting with their greater skating family.

“Finding Happiness Detroit”: Three Detroiters defy a study denouncing Detroit as the unhappiest city in America by expressing what brings them joy.

“Bless You, Boys”: Freep videographer Brian Kaufman digs into the paper’s archives to rediscover one of the most glorious moments in the city’s sports history through the eyes of reporter Bill McGraw and photographer Mary Schroeder, who covered the Tigers’ most recent World Series championship.
