What happens when a spoiled, southern debutant and a Black Panther fall in love? It is 1968. Character’s Corey and Christina meet in Oak Bluffs, a Black section of Martha’s Vineyard. Christina is 17 years old and from an upper class family. Corey is 22 and a member of the Black Panther Party. Despite their obvious differences they are sexually attracted and share a passionate night together. The next morning, however, they begin to talk and their conflicting worlds unfold. Over the next thirty-three years they meet on the same annual date to continue their sometimes illicit affair. We follow Christina’s life, as she attempts to become a best selling author, and a member of New York Society, and Corey’s, as he enters the world of politics and suffers the joys and pains of fatherhood. Each time they return to the small private beach house, they bring with them their personal growth and experiences, as well as, the effects of ongoing social and political changes in AfricanAmerican (as well as American) history.
