Besides the coronavrius, another urgent topic surfaced again this year: an end to racism. The Wichita vintage store that Gabrielle Griffie co-owns had been open for only a few weeks before the coronavirus forced businesses to shut down. And just weeks after it reopened, Griffie found herself focused on something entirely different: racial equality. Griffie spoke with Nomin Ujiyediin of the Kansas News Service about the intersection of the two biggest themes of the year for the My Fellow Kansans podcast, produced by Jim McLean.
