A Black man denied work as a lawyer in 1940s Seattle tries his luck in Shanghai, where he lands a job and learns of Japan's plan to attack US forces at Pearl Harbor. From there, he must decide whether or not to protect a country that doesn't protect him. Rumors from Shanghai author Amy Sommers will talk about her inspiration from BlackPast.org and will stay on for a chat with the website's founder, Quintard Taylor.
