Today on Stateside, the Michigan Republican Party meets this weekend to select a new chair. Two reporters discuss the candidates, as well as the latest power play that’s complicated the upcoming election. Also, why the small community of Hillsdale has a wealth of COVID-19 vaccines available for distribution. Plus, a curator discusses the Black Arts Library, which she’s brought to the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.
