Stateside: Friday, June 21, 2024

On this Friday edition of Stateside, in the wake of the Gaza war and divestment protests, the University of Michigan has entered a resolution with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights concerning the university’s handling of on-campus protests, encampments and Title VI. U-M was under investigation by Department of Education. A free-speech attorney explained what this means. U-M's statement can be found here.

Then, a Michigan author discussed his latest work, Let Gravity Seize the Dead. It's a gripping horror novella set in far reaches of Northern Michigan. After that, we visited a sports competition in West Michigan that's been gaining in popularity; Sumo wrestling. We closed the show speaking with three people involved with a new film, Love & Vodka, that's a romance between a Michigander and a Ukrainian.
