• ORDER NOW! Genesis: New American Superheroes


    Is it a novel? Is it a screenplay? It's neither. It's both. It's a non issue because it's my story and I'm telling it the way I want to tell it. Rules. What we're talking about, really, are rules. Are we worried about rules? Are we preoccupied with the way it has always been? I think that's how we found ourselves in this mess in the first place: the mess of having so few Black Superheroes to celebrate. It is well beyond time to do things differently ... fearlessly.

    In 2006, I finally crafted the story I wanted to tell. It was the story I wanted to write and share with children who loved superheroes but never saw themselves depicted in the superheroes on television or in film.

This would be my chance to create characters who would be Superman to children now and down the road. So I wrote the story I wanted to tell…then.

    Over the years, the story changed. When I first pinned the "Genesis" screenplay in 2006, I firmly believed in the possibility of all things, including Black Superheroes on the big screen. It seemed like it was time. Regular white superheroes were making a comeback, so why not? I created characters I hoped children, in general, Black Children in particular, would look as examples of their greatness. But in 2008, a new thing happened. An actual Black Man standing as tall and as proud as Superman himself, came into our lives and he stood for ALL of us. He stood for the American Way.

    Wait...uh oh.

    “Genesis” follows the lives and adventures of five siblings who were given extraordinary powers by their scientist parents when they were children. The outcome, the resulting powers, far exceeds the parent's expectations. In present day, the siblings are reunited, having long forgotten their parents, their powers and each other. “Genesis” is the story of when five strangers must become family…and then heroes. Here's how it begins...
