Two African-American attorneys, best friends, find themselves opposing council in the reparations legal battle for the African-American Holocaust - over 400 years of slavery, Jim Crowe apartheid, and myriad forms of discrimination from the United States - while navigating the US legal system and wrestling with the resulting personal turbulences in their lives. In this full cast audio drama a multitude of reparations battles and issues going on in the US including White, African and African-American, Jewish, Chinese, Muslim, Mexican, and Native American slavery; illegal Italian-American&German-American WWII internment; Hawaiian reparations; two US Mexican-American ethnic cleansings; Guam reparations; illegal US medical experimentation and biological warfare tests on its citizens; and so much more.
With a length of 15.5 hours, it's as long as a full run of a 22-week television series, less commercials, and covers a year as the two attorneys move towards the trial date.

Yes, there is a great story and interesting characters. I felt like I knew them.
I really liked the defense attorney, but both had good qualities.
Oh my. The voices brought you in some inviting, some seductive and some were smooth yet sinister. Their acting made the story come alive.
It was funny yet tense throughout. I really liked the way the defense attorney protects and cares for his family.
I highly recommend this as equally entertaining as it is educational. It creates a possible future that is interesting to consider. Great story with a message.
The adroit weaving of history, law and personal drama drew me in on all levels.

I felt extremely sad about the one attorney's wife and child.
