Annotation:
The story of an African American family, the Boskets. Covers their slave origins, their lives in the incredibly violent post-Reconstruction Edgefield County, S.C., and the family's migration to Harlem, culminating in the present-day crimes and punishments of Willie Bosket, who shot two men on the New York City subway in 1978 at the age of 15.
