The HistoryMakers Back-to-School Day of Service

Later this month, more than 400 African-American leaders in cities across the nation will go back to school to share their experiences with students. They are hoping to motivate young people to commit to finishing their education. We’re joined by Detroit HistoryMakers Rev. Dr. Jim Holley, George N’Namdi, and Billy Joe Evans, who share their experiences with this day of service.
