Indentured Scholars: The Inner City Scandal
Indentured Scholars, is a suspense/thriller that creatively explores the ongoing social dilemma of urban education. A long-secreted academic academy has been discovered by Synthia Godbold, an ambitious, yet hesitant, anchorwoman. The problem with this highly successful preparatory academy is that, for almost ten years, it requires total separation between child and his or her family. Disadvantaged children are propelled into intellectual leadership and financial success, but the social "trade-off" remains highly controversial. Synthia's investigative journey surprisingly leads her into the back offices and sanctuaries of African American business, church and political leadership. Even Synthia's own home begins to reveal its own guarded fears as her new husband must decide whether to support or sabotage his wife's journalistic efforts. Characters and conversations warmly explore the cultural and social dynamics that highlight the educational chasm of the urban child.
