Thursday, February 2, 2012

Twenty Metro Detroiters have been awarded grants as part of the BME Challenge. The awards are given to African-American men who are making a difference in the city.

Dennis Talbert has been working with young people in Detroit’s Brightmoor Community for nearly two decades – setting up education and mentoring programs for the community.

He spoke with WDET’s Jerome Vaughn about a project he’s been working on called “Rescue 51.”

…fruit of their labor.

BME Challenge award winner Dennis Talbert is one of the leaders of the “Rescue 51” project.
