Part autobiographical, Violet of a Deeper Blue chronicles the journey of a young black man from innocence to maturity in an unwelcoming and often hostile white world. This journey takes him from the board rooms of corporate America to the crime-ridden streets of the inner city. Set in the late 1980s, Violet of a Deeper Blue takes an uncensored and disturbing look at America's obsession with race.
