Ossian Sweet was born and raised in Bartow, Florida, where life for Negroes in the early 1900's was very difficult. ACT I describes his odyssey to the North in the Great Migration of the twenties where he meets and marries the lovely Gladys Atkinson and becomes a medical doctor, living with her in Detroit.
