Karima Sorel LePetit Zinc & Around the World

Karima Sorel’s life is as interesting as Benjamin Button or Forrest Gump. She’s the daughter of Charles & Teresa Kelly who ran and owned the Michigan Citizen Newspaper for over 30 years. A Parson’s Art School Fashion Design graduate from the 90’s. Her relationships with NYC during the boom in Hip-hop fashion introduced her to the guardians of NYC hip-hop culture that influences the world today (Mos Def is the Father of her second oldest Daughter). Today many people in Detroit connect with Karima because she’s the owner of LePetit Zinc Restaurant which re-opened in Midtown Detroit. The authentic French cuisine embraced most by a collection of crepes was made by her ex-husband Charles Sorel whose experience has led restaurants in Paris, Rio De Janeiro, New York City, and Munich. Karima joins me and discusses her healing through Cancer, owning a restaurant, and high fashion. This is a fun conversation and only a peek into the thoughts of Karima Sorel.
