The Marvel film "Black Panther" has shaken the pop culture landscape to its core.  Among those leading the way in spreading the film's message is Ypsilanti artist Jermaine Dickerson.  In this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi," WEMU's Patrick Campion and Concentrate Media's Brianna Kelly spoke with Dickerson about taking a group of Ypsilanti students to see the film, thanks to a crowdfunding campaign he started.
