Professor Darius Collins struggles to rebuild his life after a series of devasting, life-changing events--his girlfriend leaves him for another man, he faces the scorn of his African-American colleagues after publically opposing a university visit by a controversial black activist, and his son is accused of a vicious crime. By the author of Bittersweet.

Blackwell North Amer
Lately, Professor Darius Collins's life has been as tumultuous as the history he teaches in his university class. His girlfriend left him for another dude, his ex-wife's screwing the mayor and going down in political flames along with him, and his son Jarrod has been accused of a vicious crime. And adding insult to injury, several of his black colleagues are calling him an Uncle Tom for opposing a university visit by the controversial black activist and anti-Semite Osmani Bornu.
But if history has taught Darius anything, it's that bringing down one minority group at the expense of another is no solution - and he won't be bullied into submission. Nor will he let the system take down yet another innocent black youth. But he's got more than a small battle ahead of him, for his son, he soon realizes, is a pawn in a dirty game of politics linked to his ex-wife. Can Darius fight the system and win - and even more important, can he salvage the spirit of the son who's learning just what life can deal a black American man?
