They were high school classmates in 1965. Jimmie transferred his senior year to an affluent high school in Charlotte – he was their first Black football star. That decision swept him into one of North Carolina’s most volatile civil rights cases, played out at the explosive intersection of football and race. Fellow classmate De watched that case unfold and wrote about it in his college essay application. Decades later, a shocking discovery reveals secrets buried in church records, reconnecting the two men and changing their lives. Their story, rooted in the South, is also America’s story – one of slavery’s legacy and our current racial divide. It’s a story of healing and shows a way forward as Jimmie and De explore their binding truth.
