89.1 WEMU

community meeting

Lisa Barry / 89.1 WEMU

An Ypsilanti Township event intended to help African American men feel comfortable with their emotions and communication has become more popular than expected.  WEMU’s Lisa Barry talks with Nate Frazier and Keyon Purite in a conversation that touches on many important topics including how emotions impact your overall life experience and what that life experience is like for a black man in 2020.


Jorge Avellan / 89.1 WEMU

Saline Area Schools hosted a community conversation on diversity, equity, and inclusion this morning after students from their district made racist comments against black people on social media last weekend.  Since it was held during the day, only parents and community members attended the meeting.  89.1 WEMU’s Jorge Avellan was there and has the story.
