If you're not familiar, Osborn is a community in Northeast Detroit, roughly bounded by 8 Mile, McNichols, Gratiot and Van Dyke. The neighborhood name derives from the high school -- which, in turn, was named for suffragist and school reform advocate Laura Freele Osborn. (Fun fact: Mrs. Osborn was the first woman elected to a citywide office in Detroit. Pretty cool, right?)
