Flatland In Focus is a monthly current affairs program that takes a deep dive into a single local issue that is raising questions, causing tensions, or is curiously unexplored. Hosted by local writer, radio personality, and activist D. Rashaan Gilmore, Flatland features an in-depth video report followed by a diverse panel of voices with different takes on the topic.
D. Rashaan Gilmore is a Newsweek contributing writer and the host of the weekly radio program “Unbossed and Unbothered” on 90.1 FM KKFI, which offers candid discussions, fresh insights and perspective-shifting interviews. Gilmore is also the founder of BlaqOut, a Kansas City nonprofit working to serve the Black queer community and help end the HIV/AIDS crisis. He is the recipient of the 2021 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation–AIDS United Award for Health Equity.
Flatland and Kansas City PBS are proud to take part in the Kansas City Media Collective, a collaborative group of local, nonprofit media organizations dedicated to supporting local journalism.
