The community screening of a documentary about fighting hate crime is the focus of this week’s interview. Not In Our Town/ Stop Hate Together will take place Wednesday, Dec. 7. Patti Caudill, City of Grand Rapids Diversity and Inclusion Manager, talks with us about the film that centers on a town transformed after the murder of an immigrant, and about the panel discussion slated to follow the film screening here in Grand Rapids.


Music featured this week is from the new release called People & Places from local musician Matt Gabriel, with the song "When Times Grow Hard."
