Stateside: Friday, Feb. 4, 2022

Today on Stateside, a reporter for The Detroit News joined us to talk about a recent proposal to replace the statue of Lewis Cass that currently stands in U.S. Capitol's statuary hall with one of former Detroit Mayor Coleman Young. Then, an exploration of Malcolm X's life and legacy in Michigan. The civil rights icon grew up in Lansing and maintained close ties with fellow activists in Detroit. To wrap up, Lester Graham and Tammy Coxen whipped up a smoky libation to ease you into the weekend.
