Temple student Wendell Dingle offers free assistance to black families in tax preparation and financial aid applications. He is among more than 180 black men in Philadelphia and about 100 in Detroit who since the beginning of August have posted their stories in an online video project spotlighting black men who are leading the way in boosting their communities. "I go into the schools and I meet with students and counselors," Dingle said. "I get them to dedicate a night and I send out fliers so they can invite parents and students to come in and fill out their" forms.
