Jan 29, 2020

The Washtenaw County chapter of My Brother's Keeper (WMBK) has been helping young men of color get far in life for years.  Their latest endeavor involves connecting with the community through rap music.  WMBK project specialist Jamall Bufford discusses the group's new "Formula 734" project with WEMU's Lisa Barry and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg for this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi."
