    Summary:

    In this striking debut, Amanda Parris turns the spotlight on the Black women who organize communities, support their incarcerated loved ones, and battle institutions, living each day by a ride-or-die philosophy, strengthening their voices and demanding to be heard. In the 1970s, Beverly walks into an office of Black activists, wanting to join the Movement, and has to prove she's angry enough to fight. Some forty years later, in the Hip Hop Generation, Nicole reunites with her ex-boyfriend on a basketball court, wondering where he's been, when a police officer stops them.
