Then we take you to Detroit with tape from the Allied Media Conference, an annual gathering of vibrant and diverse people using media to incite change. We were fortunate enough to be there for the beginning of a week-long celebration for activist Grace Lee Boggs’ 100th birthday including an Asian American history tour of Detroit by the Detroit Asian Youth Project!

And finally, we delight your taste buds and with a happy sound pancake and get you ready for Kearny Street Workshop’s Dumpling Wars!
