LOOK WHAT THE FIRE DID
by Lewis J. Morrow

David designed a college course in order to empower young Black minds; however, after the death of one of his students, he can’t help but wonder if he empowered them in the wrong way.

 

While trying to make sense of it all, David and his family must face another battle before the previous one is settled. How could a college course designed to empower young minds leave a community torn, a family in grief and a reputation in question?

 

Unsure, David decides to take matters into his own hands….by any means necessary!
