We had a lot of submissions this go round. It was extra tough since we only had 2 spots open but we managed to make some decisions.
To those of you who have sent submissions in the past or recently, keep your chin up! Not being chosen this month doesn’t mean you won’t next month!
We chose one submission from the new list and one from last months list!
Two athletes from different planets are on the verge of greatness. Johnny’s a carefree Canadian making his mark in the NHL. Jamaal’s set to follow LeBron and Kyrie out of the ghetto. When their worlds collide, the catastrophic clash ignites racial conflict not seen since Ferguson. The incident tests the fledgling love of Johnny’s best friend Lucas and his African-American girlfriend Chantal, and sets them on a quest for truth and justice in the perverse racial landscape of 2016. As chaos escalates across American cities, an MLK-like voice rises from the ashes. Wilbur Rufus Holmes may be salvation for Luke and Chantal, but can he stop society’s relentless descent into racial discord? Johnny and Jamaal is awash with sports, violence and political taboo, as America’s seething dysfunction is laid bare.
An artistic tour into the mind of an up and coming poet.
