Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump made a brief stop to Detroit last weekend in an attempt to “connect” with the black community in that city. Much has been speculated about the success of the trip, and questions continue to rise about who was the primary audience for his speech last Saturday.
To set the record straight, I was born and raised in Detroit. Not the suburbs. But the city itself. Educated in the public school system, shopped in the city and was an active member of St. Paul AME Church near downtown Detroit. And although I have been gone since my college days in the 1970s, I still visit many relatives and friends who are still very active citizens of that great city.
Joining us today is my brother, Attorney Wilson A. Copeland, II, a leading attorney and resident of Detroit. We’ll talk about the political impact of Donald Trump and why MOST African Americans across the United States are still voting for Hillary Clinton. And we’ll talk about the hidden treasures of Detroit that MOST outsiders rarely get to see.
Attorney Wilson A. Copeland,II is one of the top lawyers in the state of Michigan and is a graduate of Fisk University and Vanderbilt Law School. He has practiced law in Michigan for more than 40 years. He was also inducted in the International Academy of Trial Lawyers some years ago. He and his wife, Deborah, have been married for more than 44 years, have one daughter, a son-in-law and one granddaughter. Attorney Copeland is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity and he is a Guardsman. He is also a lifetime member of St. Paul AME Church and serves on the Trustee Board.
