Woman's passion for fashion honors slain brother

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, Mich. (AP) -

Kala Wilburn didn't know how to react after she received word her brother, Antonio Anthony, was shot and killed in 2011 on the city's north side.

The 27-year-old Wilburn tells MLive.com (http://bit.ly/Sn5anT) all she knew was that she had to "continue to depend on the word of God" and be strong for her family.

Nearly a year later, Wilburn has fallen back on her "passion for fashion" to commemorate her brother and to help make a positive change on a community that often sees its young people make negative decisions.

The Flint Southwestern and Central Michigan University graduate now designs and sells bracelets encouraging people to "stop the violence."

Customers are asked to help improve the world around them. Some agreed to become mentors and help people register to vote.
