Black Pearl Sings
by Frank Higgins
Alberta “Pearl” Johnson has inherited from her African-American ancestors a soulful collection of rare folk songs. It’s 1933 and she is imprisoned in Texas for murder. Music is her lifeline to family and future. Enter Susannah, a white woman who is an ambitious collector of songs for the Library of Congress. To advance her career, Susannah wants to record Pearl singing her extraordinary repertoire. Pearl sees Susannah as a possible escort to freedom.

Blue Door
by Tanya Barfield
Lewis is a tenured professor of mathematics at a well-regarded university. Underneath his veneer of success lies a soul troubled by questions of personal and cultural identity. A night of disorienting insomnia conjures his ancestors, three generations of men from slavery through Black Power. They challenge Lewis to embark on a night journey combining past and present.
