When the coronavirus hit, businesses across Michigan were forced to retool or close their doors. Now, as businesses begin to reopen, we talk to the owner of one Asian grocery store in Ann Arbor about why he’s staying closed.";

Today on Stateside, we’ll check in with former Michigan Radio reporter Bryce Huffman, who started working for BridgeDetroit—a newsroom made up entirely of people of color—just days before George Floyd was killed by police and Black Lives Matter protests took hold across the globe. Also, a conversation with a Detroit radio journalist about the music that made the city an indelible part of punk history.
