The year is 1964 and John Estem is a bookkeeper with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). But he’s moonlighting as an FBI informant to avoid indictment for his own well-intentioned crimes. In time, Estem finds purpose in his dual roles.
He is, however, faced with complicated risks, as well as slippery questions of morality and allegiance. Inspired by real-life events that occurred in the SCLS under Dr. martin Luther King’s reign,Harrison’s debut, OUR MAN IN THE DARK, is fresh, powerful, and exquisite. - RAKIA CLARK
