Ten Square

On the heels of the government’s apology to Afircan-Americans for slavery, the Reparations Movement was born.  The Movement was successful, checks were written to the descendants of slaves and the seeds of a new America were born.

Ten Square is one of the cities that emerged in “New America,” and the life of the African-American community has been forever altered. We watch Roosevelt, a soldier duty-bound to protect the new world order and a resident of Ten Square, negotiate his obligations to his lover, his family, and his government.
