ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WJBK) -- Detroit high school student Brooke Kimbrough, along with the pro-affirmative action group By Any Means Necessary, staged a protest Tuesday to demand more diversity at the University of Michigan.
BAMN is demanding an immediate appeal on behalf of Kimbrough and Birmingham Seaholm student Daisha Martin. Both applied to the university school and were denied admission.
Kimbrough, who is black, says she carries a 3.6 GPA, scored a 23 (out of 36) on the ACT test and is a leader of University Prep High School's winning debate team. Martin's is president of Seaholm's Black Student Union, plays the violin and started an annual march against racism. Her academic records were not made public.
"I believe I have been rejected because of the morals I stand for," said Kimbrough. "I will make it my civic duty to document every news of a rejection letter that the university produces to our black, brown and red bodies."

This is truly elite college material.
Ouch. I took the ACT in 7th grade as part of the Duke TIP program. Scored a 27. And she’s proud of her 12th grade-level score of 23?
You can’t get in to U of M with less than a 28. And a 3.6 isn’t that great, either, if it was a 3.6. I’d originally heard 3.5.
So, he took the year off and was invited to Europe to play on a pro-hockey team there. After that year, he came home and went on to U of M.......
Seaholm’s Black Student Union? Does Seaholm High have a Caucasian Student Union?
