The Divided States?
Miriam has a heated exchange with a member of the alt-right in an Arkansas town with a racist history. She hopes a trip to Texas to meet Zena Stephens, the state’s first ever African-American female sheriff, can renew her optimism
The American Dream
In Chicago, Miriam searches for the American dream but finds a city starkly divided by class. She mingles with the rich at a glitzy event, then visits gang members in the troubled South Side. In Indianapolis, she meets an immigrant from Congo.
Miriam seeks to learn about American value so she attends a kids summer camp in Indiana, spends time in an Ohio jail run by a Trump-loving Sheriff and meets with a group in Tennessee who are stock-piling supplies for the end of the world.
