Description:
On the eve of America's entry into World War II, in a tiny Alabama town, two brothers come of age in the shadow of the local chapter of the Klan, where Randall - a brilliant eighth-grader and the son of a sawmill worker - begins teaching sign language to his 18-year-old deaf and uneducated brother B.J. Simultaneously, in small-town Maryland, the sons of a Pullman Porter - gifted six-year-old Eliot and his artistic 12-year-old brother Dwight - grow up navigating a world expanded both by a visit from civil and labour rights activist A. Philip Randolph and by the legacy of a lynched great-aunt. The four mature into men, directly confronting the fierce resistance to the early civil rights movement, and are all ultimately uprooted.
