One year ago, EMU students formed the Black Media Association, whose mission is to assist students of color who want to pursue media careers.  One member named Honore Washington wanted to make Eastern Michigan University more welcoming by creating a resource guide called "The BlackBook."  She talks about this project with WEMU's Patrick Campion and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg in this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi."
