In the midst of sit-ins and segregation, Dr. King’s peace marches, and violence by and against police—the color lines are drawn and redrawn in personal and political arenas. Two boys and their aunt, along with their country, are forced to face who they are. One brother fights in Vietnam, while the other joins a black militant group. In the novel’s culminating scenes, the now Vietnam Vet goes undercover for the government in an effort to free his twin from wrongful imprisonment, a mission he is willing to undertake at any cost.

Herb Jackson accomplished writer, Vietnam Veteran, and retired IBM executive, tells this story with accurate historical fact and haunting depictions of the birth of the Civil Rights Movement.
