Evrod Cassimy, Morning Anchor on WDIV/ClickOnDetroit.com, has partnered with The Detroit Public Schools Foundation, which supports the Detroit Public Schools Community District, with the release of his new single, “Good Enough.” On the CD cover, Evrod is wearing a mask with Good Enough (the title of his project) on it. When you purchase the mask on evrodcassimy.com, 100% of the sale proceeds will be donated to the DPS Foundation.
Evrod Cassimy, one of the talented morning anchors at WDIV Local 4 News, is an honorary Cass Tech student (diploma and all) because he believes in the vision of the school and students. He found out that the school’s fine arts department was in need and partnered with Cass to raise funds, and inspire the students.
The program is called NEWZIC and will showcase students in fine arts at Cass Tech including choir, dance, orchestra and band. Cassimy will also be performing songs from his debut album, “Newzic,” along with new songs from his latest album, “Just Evrod,” released on the same day.
Tickets are $20 for general admission and are 100% tax deductible and can be purchased online.. All proceeds will go to the Cass Tech Alumni Foundation to provide continuous support in all endeavors in fine arts.

I recently talked to Evrod along with three Cass Tech seniors and Fine Arts Teacher Patricia Hicks about the fundraiser and why it’s so important to them. And yes… Halloween was in full effect 😀

Local 4 Anchor Evrod Cassimy Partners With Cass Tech H.S. To Showcase Student’s Talents
When I grew up, I had lots of bouts with colorism, from the kid that smeared lotion all over my clothing because I was light-skinned, to a former employer telling me I got the job not because I was qualified, but because I filled two quotas for them… a woman, and black (but not that black). So, when WDIV’s Evrod Cassimy called me to tell me about this feature he is doing tonight… I had to share.
Colorism is still alive, and after talking with students at Renaissance High School in Detroit, Evrod and I have decided it’s time to open that discussion for you as well.
