1 Angry Black Man

Mike Anderson is a senior at the quintessential New-England liberal arts school, Frost College. And Mike is eight weeks away from graduation. On this particular day he has his African-American Literature class with his favorite professor. But today, Mike is feeling sadness. He?s feeling isolated. He?s feeling Angry. Taking place in real time, ?1 Angry Black Man,? provides a voyeuristic view of the difficult conversations young people engage in. As they navigate the society in which they live, the students draw from the intellect of master writers such as James Baldwin, Zora Neale Hurston, August Wilson and Ta-Nehisi Coates. Through their old books they find modern solutions, uncover new questions, and push the political boundaries, forcing each other to reckon with the truths they keep hidden in the dark.
