Until this summer, it seemed unlikely that anything would overtake the coronavirus as the top story of any given day, week, or month. Issues of racial justice and discussions about the best ways to address police brutality remain in the conversation around the world and right here in northeast Indiana. AVOW assembled a panelfor a nearly two hour conversation outside at Barr Street Market.
