It is 1968, and Reed, a member of Seattle’s Black Panther Party must juggle the demands of a new marriage and being six months pregnant, yet still finds time to fight for liberation and dream of creating a better world. When her best friend, Marti, moves in, there is yet one more thing on her plate. Reed has no clue of the forces at work that will eventually destroy the Party, nor the ones that threaten her own happy home. It will take twenty-nine years before she will finally discover the betrayal that was at the root of a dream deferred.
