Pancakes & Politics is Back for 2024!

One of the Michigan Chronicle’s flagship annual programs, the highly anticipated Pancakes & Politics series, is back for its 2024 season, promising a fresh lineup of engaging discussions and dynamic speakers. Kicking off the 19th season of Pancakes & Politics, Rocket Companies Founder and Chairman Dan Gilbert will headline the first of four monthly in-person events starting Thursday, March 21, and setting the stage for a series of thought-provoking conversations over breakfast.

This year, Pancakes & Politics will take on a new flavor, but will still carry on a tradition of engaging, informative, and entertaining conversations, as the venue shifts from the Detroit Athletic Club to the new 16th-floor event space at the Rocket headquarters at One Campus Martius in downtown Detroit at 7:30 a.m. The move comes as the DAC embarks on a series of extensive renovations. The new location reflects the series’ commitment to innovation and community engagement, providing attendees with a unique backdrop to connect, collaborate, and converse about issues that matter to Detroiters, and the city’s civic and business leaders.

Also new this year, the Michigan Chronicle and WDIV Local 4, Detroit’s NBC affiliate, have announced an expansive media partnership aimed at enhancing the impact of local news and information dissemination. Michigan Chronicle’s Pancakes & Politics speaker series will mark the first collaboration in the partnership, with streaming services and supporting media content being supported on all Local 4 platforms, including ClickOnDetroit.com and the Local 4+ streaming app.

About Pancakes & Politics

Pancakes and Politics was born from the desire to do more than just inform Detroiters on the policies that affect our communities but to create a seat at the table. Since 2006, Pancakes and Politics has driven the dialogue between community, business, education, and political leaders.

True to its purpose, the breakfast forum works to resonate with and represent the Black community in Detroit by highlighting matters that impact Detroiters of all ages.
