    Dantiel W. Moniz: What You Make It

    As protests erupted across the nation this summer, heavily armed militias stood off against Black Lives Matter supporters in some cities. In July, a Florida sheriff even threatened to deputize all civilian gun owners to protect Jacksonville from protesters. Dantiel W. Moniz, the author of the upcoming story collection Milk Blood Heat, takes this trend to its chilling conclusion: an America in which every citizen is either the hunter or hunted, and every small decision—where to walk, what to say, what mask to wear—could end your life. 
    Narrated by N’Jameh Camara. Hosted by Ashley C. Ford.
