Detroit, Unbroken Down [8.8.2013]

Photographer Dave Jordano got tired of the negative press about his native Detroit, so he set out to make portraits of creativity and humanity. Also in this show: An FBI investigator gives his theory of what happened to the union leader Jimmy Hoffa, who disappeared almost 40 years ago; and Charlie Rizzo shares the story of his lifelong journey with his father Matt Rizzo, who died in 1986 but remains a constant presence in Charlie's life.
