Liberal sweetheart and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren will deliver the keynote address to an expected crowd of 10,000 Sunday at the Detroit Branch NAACP's 62nd annual Fight For Freedom Fund Dinner at the Cobo Center.

It will be Warren's first time in Michigan since she visited in 2014 to speak at the Netroots Nation conference and campaign for Democratic Sen. Gary Peters, who was running to succeed Carl Levin.
