An exciting, deeply heartfelt tale certain to resonate in the minds and emotions of any young person who has felt trapped by hard times and tough choices Jordan Scott has made his decision. To stay in the hood. With the gang. The Cobras can be rough, but since Daddy left, they're the only ones who make him feel like he belongs to something that will help him become a man. And besides, it's not like he'll be trapped in this gang thing forever. But what Jordan can't know is that he'll soon begin a journey across time, a journey to a place where life is lived beneath the lash of the whip. Combining searing scenes of contemporary gang life with the parallel experiences of a nineteenth-century slave plantation, this story stands as an unflinching testimony to all who have waged the struggle to find the ray of light at the tunnel's end.
