This week on Street Beat, Syma Chowdhry and the Community Correspondents bring awareness to organizations that are trying to stop the violence in our communities.
First, Dr. Isaiah McKinnon of University of Detroit Mercy and students Aprille Doktor of Summit Academy and Gionni Campbell of Detroit Center for the Arts talk about “Bringing the Lessons Home,” a special program sponsored by the National Holocaust Museum. www.ushmm.org
