John Sinclair is about as iconic as you can get when it comes to music, revolution and other culture-bending stuff that Detroit was a hotbed for in the 1960’s. A poet, the manager of Rock pioneers MC5, leader of the White Panther Party, Sinclair remains an iconic figure to this day. If you don’t know who he is, read about him here. If you do, you know why I was so thrilled to grab some time with him on the roof of the Masonic Temple overlooking Detroit this particular day. Thank you once again, Jenny Risher, for introducing me to yet one more fantastic person in your Heart Soul Detroit collection of iconic Detroiters.
