Paradise Divided

    Activists Tyasha Harrison, left, and Holly T. Bird pose along the Grand Traverse Bay waterfront in
    Traverse City, Mich., Feb. 13, 2021. They are among local residents who have criticized a county
    commissioner for displaying a gun during an online meeting. The official’s provocative act came as a
    caller was raising concerns about right-wing extremism. Some activists say the incident is among many
    showing that Michigan’s seemingly tranquil north has some of the same racial and cultural divides that
    have ignited protests and violence in bigger cities. (AP Photo/John Flesher)
