WMUK has been recognized by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters in their annual Broadcast Excellence Awards. Earlene McMichael’s series After the Protests, What Then? won the award for best mini-documentary or series in Public Radio Group 1.
The three-part series aired in the summer after the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. It featured African-American activists who wondered if white allies would continue to work with them after the protests ended. You can find the series here.
