Today, on Stateside, let’s dive into a reflection on the HIV/AIDS crisis and how it relates to the current pandemic. We’ll look into COVID infections, vaccinations, and health care equity. Plus, we talk about the year 1971 that gave rise to Marvin Gaye’s masterwork --  What’s Going On. Lastly, if you're in search of a vacation, we’re rediscovering Idlewild, where generations of Black Michiganders went for vacation and respite.
