Light Shadows from a Dark Moon
By: Darius Rocky Collie
On the Keens Plantation, life for slaves is hard, unjust, and painful, but one night it suddenly becomes extraordinary and bizarre as a mysterious asteroid crashes near the property, doing no damage, but upending everyone’s existence—black and white alike. Light Shadows from a Dark Moon is a story about equality, justice, compassion, and forgiveness. Think before you act and treat others as you want to be treated, or some day you may suffer the consequences.
