For years, images of Flint have captured the city’s various challenges: joblessness, poverty, and crime. And that was before the city’s water crisis. Meet the Hermans, a family who still proudly calls Flint their home town.

Maddie, Jo Anne and Tim Herman say new businesses and developments give them hope. They say others need to know about them. Their story is reported by MSU journalism student Carin Tunney, who spent her early years living in Flint.

“Faces of Flint” is jointly produced by MSU journalism students studying with MSU Associate Professor Geri Alumit Zeldes and the Current State and WKAR TV staff.
