Watch Americans tell personal stories to get us through coronavirus quarantine
体育在线365Anwar Newton is car-jacked in Phoenix, Arizona, and ends up driving the would-be car thief around the city, realizing the thief is having a mental health crisis. Both men are black, and when the police arrive, the car owner wonders if he's endangered the other man by involving them.
Newton's story is among dozens of personal stories being shared during the Storytellers Project's virtual season, which has been extended through Sept. 3 as part of the USA TODAY Network’s response to the novel coronavirus. In-person shows have been paused through Sept. 1.
