A University of Michigan symposium is planned today in honor of civil rights leader Jesse Jackson.  Meanwhile, students at U of M are planning a "campus walkout" around the same time.


There will be a day-long event today on the Eastern Michigan University campus to bring the community together in light of several recent racist graffiti incidents on the campus.

It's been over a week since racist graffiti was found in several locations on the Eastern Michigan University campus.  

The campus is home to the Early College Alliance, where high school students can earn college credit.  ECA organized a "unity in the community" event Thursday to unite against the recent incident outside King Hall, where the program is located.

The University of Michigan says it's working to boost black enrollment, which has dropped to 4.7 percent since state residents voted to ban consideration of race in admissions.
