In partnership with his Sean Anderson Foundation, Big Sean will return home to host his second annual Detroit’s On Now (D.O.N.) Weekend August 17-18.
The weekend celebrates the Motor City’s families, entrepreneurs, teachers, and institutions. Saturday marks the unveiling of the Sean Anderson Foundation Production Studio in a local Boys and Girls Club, and there will also be free all-ages events: a Detroit Block Party and an event called Occupy the Corner-Detroit.
Both those events will feature live DJs, free food, live performances, free haircuts and braiding, health screenings, carnival rides, gaming, neighborhood hero awards, apprenticeship opportunities and more.
Then, on Sunday, Big Sean hosts a Mental Health Awareness Discussion with several doctors, moderated by Shawn H. Wilson, President, and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan. The discussion will focus on the stigma of mental health in the black community.

Back in March, Sean revealed that he’d overcome his own depression and anxiety with help from a therapist.
The jam-packed weekend will wrap up on Sunday night with a Bowling Party.
In a statement, Big Sean said, “Last year’s D.O.N. Weekend was a huge success, and I’m excited to bring it back for the second year in a row. I have so much love for Detroit and can’t wait to celebrate it with all of the people who make the city great.”
