What if Superman grew up as a black boy in America?

While staring in the face of racism, this story follows a young man’s journey as he comes to terms with his identity. As we extract events from America’s history and weave them with fictional undertones, we examine the truth behind his mother’s legacy, his father’s affiliation with the movement and the makings of a black superhero.

This montage sets the climate for an upcoming Sunday Kinfolk story.

Featuring Isaac Hayes, Walk On By

“We all want to receive, but few of us are easily willing to let go. We love to get and hold on. We like to get attached, only for these things and people to be stripped from us by circumstances that are out of our hands. What we don’t realize is, we are all on a basketball court, hoping for someone to pass us the ball; or doing everything in our power to get the ball. And eventually we do get it. But you don’t get a point for getting the ball. To get a point you have to make a shot, which requires releasing the ball. And sometimes, if you’re not in the best position to make the shot yourself, it is wisest to pass the ball on to someone that is. Winning is about scoring, and scoring a point is all in the way you release the ball. You have to release it gracefully, and with intention, but most of all at the right time and not a moment after. The good news is, you will get the ball back again. In fact, you will find that the better you become at releasing the ball, the more likely it is for you to be passed the ball. So work on your shot, work on your release, whatever your basketball may be.”
