Ezekiel Robinson is not your typical young man. He is smart, educated and driven. His father and step-mother moved him from the Deep South to New York City, so they could provide the family with a better opportunity. His mother and her eight- month fetus were killed at the hands of three vicious men for slapping the farm owner after he slapped her. His father and stepmother finally saved enough money to buy a train ticket to New York City. They always heard the big train late at night but never saw it.
Ezekiel was taught early in life to believe in God and hard work. He worked hard to be an excellent student in high school and college. He obtained a Masters’ degree but was still tormented by the senseless murder of his mother in the south. He was enraged that his father did nothing to revenge his mother’s death until his father explained to him why he could not do anything and asked him for forgiveness. His family and friends told him not to internalize others bad behavior, but does he listen. Will his refusal to ignore what he feels are injustices directed at him, cause him to lose focus and jeopardize his accomplishments and possibly his health?
