Overview
In 1968 Chicago, it s not easy for thirteen-year-old Sam to be the son of known civil rights activist Roland Childs. Especially when his older brother, Stick, starts keeping to himself. Then, one day, Sam finds something under Stick s bed that changes everything: literature about the Black Panthers. Suddenly, nothing feels certain anymore.
