Over the weekend We Act Radio, performers, and family of journalist Charnice Milton—the victim of a bullet meant for someone else—held a cookout in her honor outside to raise money and awareness for a bookstore the community is planning to open in her name. Journalist John Muller, who worked alongside Milton at Capital Community News, reported on event preparations while hanging posters at the same time. Her killing remains unsolved.
