A duet of narrators delivers the protagonists' alternating chapters and the time periods that influence them. Nile Bullock portrays Gibran, a Black senior at a predominately white suburban high school. Bullock expresses Gibran's fiery response when his request to attend the 1995 Million Man March is denied by his school. When he attempts to organize a protest, the school administration makes a decision that jeopardizes his future. In a time shift to 1968, Kevin Free uses a calmer affect for Gibran's uncle, Kevin, whose responses to racial inequity are contained but equally strong. Inflamed by the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., he and others confront Columbia University's policies. The author portrays Dawn, Gibran's mother and Kevin's sister, who connects the men and their parallel stories. S.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
