Show notes:

00:45 The Hate Has No Home Here rally supporting Black Lives Matter happened, in part, outside of Fletcher’s front door. We were going to cover this on the show in a different way, but we ended up talking about about what happened in his community plus the bigger picture of a changing Southeast Michigan region as a whole.
