When a child is born into nothing, and watches a mother transform absolutely nothing into something; it can be empowering and a life changing experience.  The firstborn offspring of parents who were sharecroppers in South Carolina , during the latter and most politically charged period of the Civil Rights Movement.  His very young mother abandoned the racist south with a barely two-month-old child, to start a new life up North with nothing more than a bus ticket and the clothes on their backs.
