Stateside: Friday, April 7, 2023
This week, one year ago, Patrick Lyoya, a young Congolese immigrant, was fatally shot by a Grand Rapids police officer.

Plus, we look back on the history of La Choy, a hundred-year-old Asian-American food brand, as the city of Detroit begins demolition on one of its factories.
