Evansville native Terri “Detroit” Hughes will share her remarkable journey from Skid Row to the movie screen during a public screening of the documentary film “Lost Angels: Skid Row is My Home” at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, February 19, in Carter Hall in the University Center at the University of Southern Indiana. This free, public event is associated with the Symposium on Homelessness, a student activity earlier in the day for which Hughes is the keynote speaker.
Hughes travels the country, conducting presentations on homelessness, poverty, mental illness and drug addiction. In 2014, she first shared her story at USI during the Symposium on Homelessness, and she also answered questions following a screening of “The Soloist,” in which she plays herself: a homeless, 88-pound woman with a drug addiction and mental illness living on Skid Row in Los Angeles.
