ON PROMISED LAND is set in the 1840s at the end of the Second Seminole War. It details the great American dream of all pioneers who settled the western lands. But these are black pioneers. Black-Seminole pioneers. These stalwart, industrious folk strive and survive in what we think of as the "American Way" even when they aren't recognized as Americans--or Seminoles--or free. Yet they persist.
