      My late husband, Ben Burns, founded the Journalism Institute for Minorities, now the Journalism Institute for Media Diversity, at Wayne State University. He led the journalism department at WSU for decades and he would love this initiative. As a resident of downtown Detroit, lawyer and former newspaper journalist, I see the need for the work you’re doing and applaud you for undertaking and executing it so well.
