1947 North Carolina, the rules are very different depending on the color
of your skin. Twelve-year-old Pattie Mae understands this and longs
to move north to Harlem with her brother and sister. She can't wait
until she is old enough to leave. She loves her mother and her grandparents
but the pull of the north is strong. Uncle Buddy has told her lots
about life in Harlem. He spent many years there. So many that
he sometimes forgets the rules in the south.
