Five year-old Ziare Gunn, a student at the Ford Early Learning Center in Ypsilanti, is gaining a lot of recognition for memorizing and reciting a special poem for Black History Month. He joined 89.1 WEMU'S Lisa Barry in studio along with his grandmother and teacher and shares the poem with WEMU listeners, saying it "makes his heart feel good."
Gunn learned the poem after studying it for 3 hours and recited it in front of the Ypsilanti Community Schools Board of Trustees, where he received a standing ovation.
